The Embroidered Digital Commons

The Embroidered Digital Commons (2007-2013) is an internationally distributed embroidery of the text 'A Concise Lexicon of/for the Digital Commons' written by the Raqs Media Collective (2003). The text is being stitched by artists, crafters and computer programmers in groups and through social networks as part of the Open Source Embroidery project facilitated by Ele Carpenter.

AMIW will facilitate the stitching of the term ‘Heterogeneous’ as part of VBKÖ, 2011:
Heterogeneous: That, which begins in many places, like the story of a person's life. Diverse, dispersed, distributed, as in the authorship of culture, and in the trajectories of people who come to a site. Interpretations and ideas embrace greater freedom only when they encompass heterogeneity. In this, they are like most intimacies and some kinds of fruitcake. The richer they are, the more layers they have.
