The Puppets of Darkness is a series launched in support of the Ukraine. All pieces are based on the seismic geopolitical shifts being etched in the world around us, as visible from 20,000km above the earth’s orbit. The embroideries are inspired by satellite photos (NASA and ESA), reinterpreted at By Told, and embellished by our talented embroidery partners in Mumbai. All profits from the series will be donated to the UNHCR and Bellingcat. Bellingcat is an NGO working with satellite imagery, among many other resources, to report on and expose the truth on important topics shaping the world around us.
Beyond the Gates
This work was inspired by satellite photos of Europe at night, and the almost perceptible risks facing Europe from the East.
