For this work I chose a pixeled cropped image of "The Kiss (Lovers)" by Gustav Klimt and added text to each pixel from O'Henry's Short Story titled, " The Enchanted Kiss". The story is a romance with a twist, a one-sided romance, the story of a single night in the life of Samuel Tansey. As with most O'Henry stories this one has a surprise ending where the "imminent figure of Fate jerks wildly at the wrong strings, and mixes things up in her usual able manner."
Materials: Cotton sateen, with pixelated image of "The Kiss (Lovers)" by Gustav Klimt and text from O'Henry Short Story titled, " The Enchanted Kiss". Image designed by the artist and printed by Spoonflower,
