Nature-Inspired " Floating Embroidery" by Katerina Marchenko


Embroidery is a delicate art at the best of times, but Russian textile designer Katerina Marchenko takes the skillful craft to the next level. By hand-stitching nature-inspired embroidery designs onto net-like tulle fabric, Marchenko creates mesmerizing floating illusions. The dazzling designs shimmer on the translucent fabric: colorful insects flutter and birds soar through the air, while fish appear to swim inside the embroidery hoop “fish bowls.”
 Along with colorful cotton embroidery floss, stitched to create a painterly effect, Marchenko embellishes some of her designs with sequins, beads, and metallic threads. Once the artist’s ethereal designs are complete, she releases her thread animals from the embroidery hoop and incorporates her work into her own handmade garments.

Inequality gap widens as 42 people hold same wealth as 3.7bn poorest

The development charity Oxfam has called for action to tackle the growing gap between rich and poor as it launched a new report showing that 42 people hold as much wealth as the 3.7 billion who make up the poorest half of the world’s population. In a report published on Monday to coincide with the gathering of some of the world’s richest people at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Oxfam said billionaires had been created at a record rate of one every two days over the past 12 months, at a time when the bottom 50% of the world’s population had seen no increase in wealth.

Happy birthday, Sergei Eisenstein!


Born this day in 1898, Sergei Eisenstein was a Soviet artist and avantgarde director of several groundbreaking films, including Battleship Potemkin, Strike, and The General Line. Known as the father of montage — the film technique of editing a fast-paced sequence of short shots to transcend time or suggest thematic juxtapositions — Eisenstein deployed arresting images in sequences of psychological precision. His films were also revolutionary in another sense, as he often depicted the struggle of downtrodden workers against the ruling class.


 Today, Google Doodle celebrates his 120th birthday with a tribute to his pioneering technique.
