Jen Southern – Running Stitch

I’m working on a new piece for FutureSonic with Jen that explores collaborative Mapping.

Features an iPhone app that is development. In the meantime read about running stitch…

Running Stitch is a 5m x 5m tapestry map, created live during the exhibition by charting the journeys of participants through the city.

Visitors to the exhibition took a GPS-enabled mobile phone to track their journeys through the city centre. These walks resulted in individual GPS ‘drawings’ of the visitor’s movements that were then projected live in the exhibition to disclose hidden aspects of the city. Each individual route was sewn, as it happened, into a hanging canvas to form an evolving tapestry that revealed a sense of place and interconnection.
