1-1 by Liz Murphy Thomas

Title of Work – 1-1
Artist – Liz Murphy Thomas
Description – This piece is the first in a series that seeks to render the landscapes and characters of classic video games through the medium of “craft” – specifically counted cross stitch, a form of needlepoint. Video games have long had a reputation of single gender association. Conversely, the medium of “craft” is often reduced to an opposite gender association. By combining the subject matter of video games with the medium of “craft” I hope to negate and question the associations of gender by rejecting the bias of medium and subject matter respectively.
