Embloggery is a fascinating project – seeking, in artist Nicole Wolfersberger’s words
"to examine the implications of the fact that we now have the ability to disseminate widely something written very quickly, to a potentially very large audience"
Each entry in the blog is a digital image of a hand embroidered diary entry. The first post, what/why, raises questions about how and what we communicate in this age of instantaneous interaction. Forming a stitch, clicking ‘publish’ on a blog, the actions of the hand and the mind, the relationships and tensions between the physical and the digital, are some of the themes Nicole is exploring. She invites readers to journey with the blog and comment and critique, and to follow the images to her Flickr pages, where they include notes and links which contribute to the overall piece.
