    October 5, 2009 by Britex Fabrics

    Open Source Embroidery Show, Oct. 2 — Jan. 24, Museum of Craft and Folk Art, SF, CA, The Open Source Embroidery exhibition presents artworks that use embroidery, thread, and code as a tool for participatory production and distribution. Open Source Embroidery includes workshops and exhibitions that investigate how the open source software development model has been incorporated into the language of cultural participation. This major exhibition brings together individual and collectively made artworks by artists, makers, computer programmers and html users that explore the relationship between craft and code through social and digital networks. The works experiment with interdisciplinary approaches to modifying patterns, the DIY culture of hacking and sampling in sound, GPS and mobile technologies.
