The final qualifying work named "Where Me and Myself" is based on the research in arts and crafts. Embroidery is one of the traditional and ancient directions of applied art, which is still relevant today. In modern creative practices, authors use embroidery as a tool that performs a variety of functions. Some of them use embroidery as a decorative technique to create picturesque panels and objects. Others employ the threads for their original role: to connect, fix, combine and create all sorts of hybrids. Embroidery is inextricably associated with the material employed. Traditionally, embroidery is performed on various kinds of fabrics. Then as now, modern artists use all sorts of bases and expand the bounderies, going into volume. A printed image can be assumed as one of the alternatives, or rather, a primary source for embrodery. It is no coincidence that the name of the study speaks of cross-disciplinary practices, since the printed image itself is as well an independent art form with its own history. This study demonstrates the diversity of practices in contemporary art, which allows authors to combine embroidery and printed images in their work. The research is based on the analysis of embroidery from the point of view of the new role eleborated when interacting with print. The bases for the final project is the piece of work created using embroidery and printed graphics.
