Caitlin Thompson is the only artist in Alberta working in “embroidermation,” the combination of embroidery and quilting with animation. Her work aligns the stitch with the pixel in colourful needleworks of landscapes created by both hand and machine. Thompson’s embroidermation combines embroidery and animation in a dynamic process, creating looping, revolving landscapes with a nod towards the history of the panoramic vista.
