Camera Scroll (2021)

Challenged with encapsulating her practice within one artefact, Camera Scroll is a long form cross stitch embroidery that documents Pilkington’s phone camera roll from summer 2021. Spanning the photographic, craft and illustrative elements of her practice, this piece also nods to her research into contemporary reading conventions and the evolution of book form through history. 
The shared ‘pixelated’ aesthetic of both cross stitch and digital devices is highlighted in this piece, forming a tactile link between online and material realities and prompting viewers to ‘scroll’ a little differently.
