Glimpse at newspaper clippings – We have enough problems of our own.
Glimpse at newspaper clippings – stitched pixel by pixel – despair expressed in time.

The lives of the people depicted by Tanja Boukal in her correspondent series of cross-stitch images are "hanging by a thread", based on media images that we have seen, but only briefly noticed and immediately forgotten ourselves while flipping through a newspaper.
Tanja Boukal has stitched them pixel by pixel, trying to honor these people by taking the time to do so.
