You lost me by Sara Engberg

Brooch
 
Interlinked textile brooches on the theme of geographical and mental distances. I worked intuitively on this piece, plaing with the constrained number of letters contained in the country names on a map of Central Europe. The map was originally a beautiful vintage silk scarf, printed on both sides. I hesitated for months before cutting it to pieces. Once the letters were cut out, I started playing with them randomly. "You lost me" was the first sentence that came to me. It made me think of confusion, misunderstandings and losing track of each other. I also found it quite fitting since it's a map. And there is hope, in the fact that the "you" and "me" are still tied together.
