Dianna Frid

In 1572 Tycho Brahe discovered a new star in the constellation Cassiopea. What he had seen was in fact the explosion and subsequent expiry of a dying star that faded from view within months. In Stardeath (2009), a one of a kind cloth book, Frid alludes to this event in a twofold way. First, she establishes an intricately stitched sequence in which a densely sewn astral pattern gradually breaks down into the simple structure of lines underlying the star shapes. Above the pattern, using sewn and collage elements, Frid reveals a second sequence of events: the transformation of a dot into a blast, and a blast into a void.
