Dotmund’s Bayeux Odyssey: Day One

by | Jun 10, 2016

Long time readers of this site will already be plenty aware of the fact that we love a bit of art here on 200%. From that picture of dogs playing poker to the poster of a woman scratching her backside whilst playing tennis, there isn’t any art that we don’t like. In 2010, Edward Carter took the story of France’s brief involvement in the competition and told it through the means of a Bayeux Tapestry, and this summer, as it’s being held in France, he’s telling the story of the entire tournament. He’s already indicated the extent of the rod that he has created for his own back, of course.

So, over the course of the next few weeks or so, we’ll be telling the story of the 2016 European Championships – the good, the bad and the ugly – through the medium of a tapestry that isn’t a tapestry, and at the end of it all we’ll be able to stitch together each daily panel into one long report on it all. Should UEFA be interested in making this their official tapestry for the tournament we are, of course, open to offers. So, here’s day one – well be back every day with an update for you. And don’t forget that you can find Dotmund on Twitter right here. (Click on the image to open it to its full size.)
