Noel Clueit’s artwork uses a stock photograph of a tea towel from a Google image search. It depicts an archetypal woven design, therefore contrasting with the digital printing technique employed by Artist Tea Towel Company. The design conveys the journey of a tea towel becoming an image, then returning as a tea towel transformed through technology and means of production. The concept is further complicated by the Dreamstime company watermark, used to deter people from using or printing its images without purchase, which in this case becomes an aesthetic embellishment.
