Dare to show the cord: A hard-material embroidery on wood, 150x275 cm

”Dare to show the cord” is a work concerned whith the concept of hominess, where I bring forward details often hidden in home furnishing specifically electrical cords. I was inspired by the local textile technique of ”Blekinge embroidery”

(Blekinge is a region in the South East of Sweden). However instead of using conventional soft textile materials, needle, and thread I have used electrical cords, a drilling machine and wood.
