Michael-Birch Pierce is an MFA candidate in Fibers at Savannah College of Art and Design. This incredible video is, in his own words, ‘one in a series of free-motion embroidered portraits. All portraits are done from life, in one sitting, and are completely unplanned. No preliminary drawing or sketching, just an impulsive gesture drawing using the machine. My goal with these pieces is to find life in the machine’. Watch on in awe.
