In her latest group of works entitled Contactprints, Sissi Farassat explores depictions of vast landscapes (right through to cloud formations), botanical close-ups and the classic idea and conception of humankind. She composes her “contact prints“ generated from the individual frames of each analogue film directly in the camera, and then hand-stitches or embroiders the images. The individually finished surfaces reference the tradition of Persian carpet weaving and knotting, adding a further sensory plane to the unique pieces created in this way.
