ALEXANDRIA DETERS - 1-877-933-HUNK (I really hope you CALL AGAIN)
Part of ongoing Revise(d) series (2019-Present) - Directly embroidering on pages from vintage Life and 'girlie' magazines, resulting in a re-analyzation of the original text and image, changing its current meaning and purpose.
For this work, the fabric is embroidered with phrases that I imagined the twin phone sex operators would say to a potential client.
