Urban Carpet

The Dongsi Shi Tiao [Urban Carpet: Green 2009], is just one of a series of 8 urban carpets, representing different maps of Hutong areas in downtown Beijing. 

Embroidered by hand onto canvas, employing the same technique as on propaganda slogans, used by the communist party in the 1970's. 

Kind of fun to be able to pick out the whereabouts of your house on the carpet! For the other 7 carpets in the series go: here
