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.
At Access Space we have stitched the two words ACCESS and KERNEL which will be on display from 6th – 31st July, together with info and examples from work done in other places, including the word CODE stitched into a patchwork quilt at The National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park in 2011
The 'Embroidered Digital Commons' is based on the beautifully crafted language of the Concise Lexicon of/for the Digital Commons written by the Raqs Media Collective, and published in the Sarai Reader 2003. The full lexicon is an A-Z of the interrelationship between social, digital and material space. It weaves together an evolving metaphorical language of the commons which is both poetic and informative.
