Devorah Sperber's 'Thread Spool Works' project lines up a series of wound thread so as to produce portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Mona Lisa and the Rolling Stones lips. The iconic images are difficult to decipher despite their famous nature. One can however see them perfectly through Sperber's elongated magnifying glasses.
Thread Spool Works builds on Sperber's intense interest in eyesight. The act of seeing is basic and essential to her work as a visual artist. Viewers get the chance to look back and forth between the details and the bigger picture by way of the lenses, a deliberate offshoot of her obsession with vision.
Sperber also aims to focus on technology through art. The capacities of the magnifying glasses offer an astonishing perspective that would be imperceptible to the naked eye alone.
