“In creating these figures pixel by pixel, I want to pay homage to the fine needlework of the countless women who stitched these figures, and in so doing, literally inscribed figures of joy into the very fabric of domestic life. In the end, I want to revive this visual legacy and enable it to evolve’ – Maria-Olga Vlachou
