SHOW & TELL: Ele Carpenter ~ Embroidered Digital Commons

For over a year Access Space participants have been embroidering the definition of 'Kernel' as part of Ele Carpenter's Embroidered Digital Commons project, part of Open Source Embroidery. Join Ele at Access Space for an informal introduction to and reflection on the project.

The Open Source Embroidery project was initiated by Ele Carpenter in 2005. The project has grown to support and facilitate a range of artists practice investigating the relationship between programming for embroidery and computing. It's based on the common characteristics of needlework crafts and open source computer programming: gendered obsessive attention to detail; shared social process of development; and a transparency of process and product.

From 2010 until 2012 the project will focus on the Embroidered Digital Commons by facilitating workshops to stitch a lexicon of terms describing the idea of the digital commons, produced by Raqs Media Collective.
