These gorgeous hand-embroidered mini cushions are from Min Pin's Deep Torpor window exhibition at Craft. This dream-like world is inspired by the deep sea that remains 95% undiscovered. With over 3 billion years of evolution progressing in such an unfamiliar, hostile environment Min Pin imagines the infinite possibilities of life that exists. Deep Torpor’s bizarre world of ghosts, aliens, urban legends and living fossils reveals the expansive depths of human imagination, dreams and storytelling.
Materials: hand embroidered and painted fabric cushion.
