Ines Seidel uses old text to create new meanings. These texts are often in the form of discarded newspapers, or, as in this case, an old book. What is apparently no longer useful is partially destroyed, transformed and given a new form. My research on stitching on paper as an art form led to the discovery of Ines Seidel. I found her to be highly innovative in her use of stitching, combining paper and yarn as a medium of artistic expression embedded with meaning.
