25 people each designed the front of a postcard using the word "unified" in their chosen language. The backs of the postcards (not pictured) all fit together as one poster that says "unified" in English. Each person sent a card to everyone else so each person ended up with 25 different cards that all fit together. I guess the project was similar to a swap except everyone sent the same thing to everyone on the list.
The one I designed is Czech (standardni).
To create the imagery, I started by embroidering the letters on canvas. Then I collaged over the whole thing with mulberry papers and gloss medium. I scanned in the finished image and sent prints to everyone.
Anyway, I haven't seen anyone combine collage and embroidery or really even embroidery with anything so I thought I would share and maybe inspire someone!
