The Embroidered Digital Commons is a collectively stitched version of ‘A Concise Lexicon of/for the Digital Commons’ by the Raqs Media Collective (2003). The project seeks to hand-embroider the whole lexicon, term by term, through workshops and events as a practical way of close-reading and discussing the text and its current meaning.
Part of the Being Social exhibition at Furtherfield Gallery.

Join us for Being Social, our opening exhibition of contemporary artworks that explore how our lives - personal and political - are being shaped by digital technologies.
Furtherfield has established an international reputation as London's first gallery for networked media art since 2004. With this exciting move to a more public space we invite the public, artists and techies - amateurs, professionals, celebrated stars and private enthusiasts - to engage with local and global, everyday and epic themes in a process of imaginative collaboration and exchange.
