Tharsis Sleeps – Thrones

I came across this incredible embroidered video for Tharsis Sleeps by Thrones thanks to the mighty WFMU

It was created by embroidering over 3000 frames onto individual denim patches the size of A5 paper. The video was directed by singer Nicos Livesey and used around 200 square metres of denim.
