I’m proud to announce an upcoming exhibition, Open Source Embroidery:
The Open Source Embroidery exhibition presents contemporary artwork which uses embroidery and code as a tool to investigate participatory production and distribution methods. The project explores how the open source software development model has been incorporated into the language of cultural participation, involving interdisciplinary approaches to skill-share and collaboration. The exhibition includes material and digital works that make visible the physical characteristics of technology and social communications networks.
The Open Source Embroidery exhibition brings together individual and collectively made artworks by artists, crafts people, makers, computer programmers and html users which explore the relationship between craft and code, physical and digital space. The artworks experiment with interdisciplinary approaches to modifying patterns, the DIY culture of hacking and sampling in sound, GPS and mobile technologies.
The exhibition brings together several international artists, and I’m excited to be one of them!
