Tapestries by Christy Matson of stitched-together screenshots from the LucasArts game Loom.

Loomscapes is inspired both by the tradition of tapestry weaving and contemporary video game culture. Each weaving is composed of screen shots taken from LucasArts’ early 1990’s computer game, aptly named LOOM, to create “digital landscapes” that are curiously absent of narrative (unlike the well-known Bayeux Tapestry of France, a 230-foot long cloth made 1066 that depicts the battle of Hastings).
