Inge Jacobsen cross-stitches over magazines creating a piece of art. She says, “By using intricate and, at times, painstaking technique such as embroidery, I am disrupting the easy consumption of these images. For example I’m in the process of creating a series made up of covers of Vogue magazine that I cross-stitch into. This process makes the covers very tactile and it creates something that is impossible to reproduce on a large scale because each piece is unique and handmade. I feel I have taken it out of circulation and made it something of my own.”
