Author Gisela Steinlechner* has described the work of Farassat with the following words: "Her sewn photographic art may seem idi osyncratic and in its time-consuming production even anachronistic\, but it touches and reflects essential aspects of the perception and the aesthetic s of the photographic image per se...

...With their glitters and iri descent colors the sequined images recall splendid apartments\, but also th e glittery world of disco and film shows. All this glamour is\, however\, c ontrasted by the commonness or intimacy of the subject. Often Farassat work s on self-portraits\, or she transforms images of family members and friend s or strangers from the streets. Stitching a photograph\, a process that mi ght take days and weeks\, in this regard also means discussing personal wor ld of pictures and relationships."

Each one of Farassat's pieces is unique and one of a kind. \; The work ranges in size from 12" x 18" to 40" x 60".
