Andrew Kleindolph from San Francisco has created a piece of digital artwork using cross stitch. But this isn’t any ordinary cross stitch: it’s all digital. Surrounded by a lovely wooden frame, the screen displays a message received by SMS, converting it into the clever font and giving it an appropriately life-like texture. The SMS is received via a FONA module and the programming is done using openFrameworks. There’s not much more detail on his website but it’s a lovely project. See it in action below:
