Embroidery based on the image of the HIV virus under a microscope. This image is at the moment a test, i practiced the french knot process again as i wanted to ensure that i had it under control before starting on pieces that i want to use as final pieces. I want to experiment with surfaces that i am embroidering, and experiment with using other media alongside the embroider. For example incorporating painting with watercolours and inks.
After scanning the image in i played around with it in photoshop and found that it looks really realistic when the levels are changed and altered. I want my final images to be physical rather than digital, but it’s interesting to see how altering the levels can completely change the image.
