WOVEN MUGSHOTS

I just discovered American textile artist

Joanne Arnett

 (via

The Jealous Curator

) and i'm completely in love. Arnett 

"weaves large scale portraits with wire so the face is visible when light bounces off it. The images shift, like a giant daguerreotype from positive to negative depending on where the viewer stands, or sometimes they completely disappear into the plane of fabric.
