Inspiration of the day// James Merry
James Merry is an English artist, now based in Iceland where he has been living and working since 2009.
He works from a small cabin studio outside of Reykjavík, sewing by hand in a variety of mediums.
James is a self-taught embroiderer, having originally studied Classical Greek at Oxford University.
The reason why I think he is a genius is for the incredible headpieces he did for Bjork during the Vulnicura Tour.
Using every kind of material (silicone, tulle, fluorescent treads, pearls, aluminium wire..) his creations thansformed Bjork in an insect like woman with bioluminescent antennas and velvet details like a moth.
Please check his website for more of his works and images.
