Nothing looks more retro like cross-stitch embroidery. Well, maybe a typewriter machine or a rotary dial telephone. But even they could look ”more” retro by adding the cross-stitch embroidery. Swedish artist Ulla-Stina Wikander brings back obsolete items as works of art using cross-stitched embroideries that she has collected for over a decade.
Some of the small objects like a iron or a telephone can take up to a day or two to make, but the bigger installations take weeks to finish.
