Photos from opening of OSE

As promised here's a link to Ele's photographs from the opening event of the Open Source Embroidery exhibition.


On a personal note it's great to see people already getting involved in the cut and paste, pixel drawings and stitching on the armchairs. Can't wait to see the results.

Well done Ele, all the participating artists and projects, and a big thank you to all the crew at MOCFA in San Francisco for putting it all together.

much love

Sounds of Umea and London

Here's a short film of a selection of pixel drawings created by the sampler-culture clash collective in London and visitors to the OSE exhibition in Umea, Sweden back in June. We've transfered the images into Reaktor to create the sounds you hear during the film.

OSE hits San Francisco

The Open Source Embroidery exhibition, curated by Ele Carpenter and featuring elements of sampler-cultureclash, opened last night at the Museum of Craft and Folk Art in San Francisco. Sadly I couldn't be there to show my support, but I was there in spirit.I'll post some photos, or links to photos / videos once they're available. The exhibition runs until 24 January 2010.

Alongside the work we exhibited in Umea, we've contributed a new short film of ten pixel drawings, created by visitors to the Bildmuseet in Umea, which we've put into Reaktor to create sounds.
