{ x-traordinairy }

thanks to, i was introduced to these extraordinary pieces of art that slightly remind me of tim burton's corpse bride (which is a watched regular, along with his other film the nightmare before christmas, every halloween).  with a needle, mathew cox has combined the living and the dead in his embroidered x-rays; mixing the soft, warm texture of rich colored thread with the hard, cold-to-the-touch, black and white, dreary plastic.  if you have fallen in love with these slightly creepy masterpieces as much as i have, you can look at more of his pieces here and here.
