Wolowiec’s process is a story in itself. The artist collects jpegs and tiffs through specific hashtags and geo-tags. She cherry-picks and arranges the images then transfers the freshly made composition through a dye-sublimation process onto polymer threads. Wolowiec weaves the yarn on a manual loom to create a tapestry to which she sometimes adds a gestural mark. The final textile maintains a grid-like pattern that refers to the square and rectangle formats of the source photographs.
