Karen Reimer exhausts me to the max. Her work is extremely detail oriented which in turn means extremely time intensive. And yes these are embroideries if you cannot quite tell.
Solution to Last Week's Puzzle
The embroideries are laboriously produced copies of pieces of text taken from sources ranging from great books to candy wrappers. Generally speaking, copies are of less value than originals. However, when I copy by embroidering, the value of the copy is increased because of the elements of labor, handicraft and singularity - traditional criteria of value. The copy is now an "original."
Using a different but equally familiar criteria, the value of the object as a copy is decreased by the technique of embroidery. Not only is it inefficient in terms of time and labor, it also produces a bad copy; it makes the original partially or completely illegible.
