Embroidered Digital Commons

Craft & Design Yarncraft



Embroidered Digital Commons is a participatory artwork facilitated by Ele Carpenter. You can sign up to embroider a patch of text for display at the AND Festival in Manchester UK this coming October:

The Embroidered Digital Commons is a collectively stitched version of the Raqs Media Collective’s text ‘A Concise lexicon of / for the Digital Commons’ 2003, facilitated by Ele Carpenter. The term ‘Zone’ is being facilitated by ArtYarn and Madlab for the ‘Analogue is the New Digital’ exhibition curated by Simon Blackmore and Andrea Zapp, part of the AND Festival, Manchester October 2010.

If you would like to embroider a patch or co-ordinate a group to embroider a whole term, please get in touch through the open source embroidery google group.
