A Thousand Pinpricks

re-pix-bleed-introI Bleed, the fifth Project Doolittle work, required a purchase of several boxes of sewing pins and about two hours of sticking them into a felt cushion. We’re happy to inform you that it was mostly painless.

Obviously this time the relation between the title and the material was not very complicated – though we are glad to have avoided oozing liquids. Instead, with the cushion and the script-y lettering combined with the words themselves, we venture once again into the feminism-related territories. At least, that’s a hint for those of you who like to get deep into the meaning of visual works. For the others: rainbow colors!

re-pix-bleed-front re-pix-bleed-backI’m not sure how many pins exactly we used but I pretty sure it was over 500.

    J’adore les couleurs qu’il a mis, je trouve que ça ressort bien sur le coussin qui est foncé.
