Urban Carpet

I just love the concept, beautiful execution and its perfect mix of art, technique, social investigation and urban research of this carpet. It is part of the Instant Hutong art project that investigates the borderline case of Hutong districts in old downtown Beijing. Each Urban carpet (8) represents different maps of Hutong districts and are embroidered by hand with the same technique of the propaganda slogans on large fabrics used by the communist party during the seventies.
