The red thread of fate is an East Asian belief originating from Chinese legend and is also used in Japanese legend. According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red string around the ankles of those that are destined to meet each other in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. Often, in Japanese culture, it is thought to be tied around the little finger.
The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break.
I love the idea of this amongst photographs and artwork. I wish I had more embroidery skills.
Yup, I’ve said for 5 years now that my sweetie is the other end of my Red String of Fate.
I stumbled upon a website that allows you to blend any colors evenly no matter how opposite on the spectrum they are.

Faig Ahmed, Embroidered Space
Faig Ahmed explores composition of a traditional Azerbaijanian carpet by disjointing its structure and placing its elements into open space. With his large-scale piece titled “thread installation”, Faig re-interpreted the traditional carpet materials of his homeland by creating a type of spatial ‘stitching’ with the yarn across the surface of a wall. Speaking about his work Faig says, “I’ve been always fond of investigating and researching every detail of anything that had interested me and sometimes this researches reached inconceivable depths mixing up with my imagination. I’m heretofore harried by a question others have left in childhood – ‘what is inside?. That’s why I’m changing habitual and visually static objects making them spatial, giving them a new depth.and this as if reveals the essence of this object – the object that was mediocre just a minute ago.”
