Aerial embroidery recreates the swirling beauty of NASA imagery

Artist Danielle Currie from Satellite points uses the grandeur of the Earth as inspiration for her embroidery art. Using NASA images as source material, she recreates the swirling beauty of satellite photography in wooden hoops. We have already marveled at her ability to translate this imagery into a mesmerizing mix of blues, greens and gray threads. His last pieces have only become more complex since.

Using fine strands of embroidery floss, the artist traces each stitch on Kona cotton to faithfully recreate selections from NASA’s Ocean Biology Processing Group. She does this with thread painting techniques, in which each line is like an individual brushstroke and the colors blend together. The result creates a beautiful tapestry of hues that can be fully appreciated up close. It’s these side images that show how many hours of work went into the meticulous approach and why it’s worth paying attention to detail.
