Diane Savona tells the history of communication with a needle and thread. Her tablets tell stories of libraries destroyed, manuscripts hidden and discovered, information shared and disseminated. She designs each one in Photoshop, combining and refiguring images found online. Diane prints the images on cloth, hand-paints them with dyes, and embroiders them. Just like ancient ceramic tablets, these tablets hold information, but in cloth, not clay.
