In Access Space, Sheffield
Odd Day News is an embroidered newspaper that came out every other day (and sometimes every third day, and other times just on the least expected day) during the two-week Documentary-Embroidery residency in Access Space (Sheffield, UK). Headlines and images were "printed" using the embroidery machine (we made extensive use of the Star, Sheffield's local newspaper and the last local daily in the UK), then to be "improved" using hand embroidering (during which tea and cookies were consumed). The whole process was informed by ongoing conversations with the users, collaborators, workers and volunteers at Access Space. These conversations revolved around local issues and around issues regarding the press, the local channels of information and what is news-worthy.
