Not content with cross stitching amazing Unicorn Porn, my good buddy Spike Dennis is now getting robots involved in his embroidered installations! His latest work, Content Moderated, took over 600 hours to stitch and is powered by four micro-processors.
“This work is a continuation of my unicorn studies and the critique of our attitudes and actions in a digitally inter-connected society. This sculpture is inspired by online dating adverts posted by women who are seeking a male-female couple to enter into a poly-amourous relationship with.”
“Each panel measures approximately 5″ wide by 14″ tall; each complete image measures approximately 20″ wide by 14″ tall. The cross stitch panels for this sculpture took approximately 600 hours to embroider by hand. Each set of three panels is mounted on top of a continuous rotation servo motor, powered by an Arduino Uno processor.”
Spike is exploring some fascinating territory with his work – be sure to visit his site to learn more about this piece and see a video of it in action!
