Anonymous asked: Hi Manny, I was looking at your embroidered metropolis series, and i wondered if there was a meaning behind the work, for example why every piece has a black and white photo or why you sew into it, does it have some kind of deep meaning that im not getting or is it just a bit of fun?

well hi!

For that series the colored portraits are the person as they are, while the black and white portraits are darker emotions (ex: Depression) that are almost mechanical in comparison, the thread was mostly and aesthetic choice in place of actual robotic attachments. (I still made the thread linear and geometric to allude to robotics.

[It was also partially fun]
