Diane Meyer. Photographies with embroidered pixels

This series is based on photographs taken at various points in Diane Meyer's life and arranged by location. Sections of the images have been obscured through a layer of embroidered pixels sewn directly into the photograph. The embroidery deteriorates sections of the original photograph forming a new pixelated layer of the original scene. The project refers to the failures of photography in preserving experience and personal history as well as the means by which photographs become nostalgic objects that obscure objective understandings of the past.

“Time Spent That Might Otherwise Be Forgotten”, It is to simple sight a collection of photographies that would not stand out between great others, since the act of blurring certain parts of a photography is not precisely something innovator. What makes emphasize Diane Meyer's work is his way of taking so personal photographies, reflecting moments and places of his life, and hides the details by means of a rigorous process of seam for every pixel.
