@TaylorSwift13 – An Embroidered Taylor Swift Tweet
This is a hand embroidered copy of a tweet posted by Taylor Swift in October 2014.
I hand embroidered Taylor’s tweet using cotton thread on a cotton ground.
It looks like Taylor’s original tweet has received a couple more retweets since I embroidered it!
I wish I could dress my cats in Halloween costumes but the one time I tried that, Meredith tried to jump off a balcony.

I’ve been thinking about ideas relating to permanence within my work lately. The notion of making a tweet physical, tangible seemed quite interesting and so this is something of a little sketch to help me understand how to process some of these ideas.
