Collaborative Curating and New Media
Centre for Creative Collaboration, 16 Acton Street, King’s Cross

Panel discussing issues chaired by Irini Papadimitriou,
 Eleanor Dare and Lee Weinberg  (http://www.wix.com/Vains_Pro/VAINS),  Ruth Catlow and Marc Garrett (Furtherfield  artists:online media arts Community and Ele Carpenter , Curating, Goldsmiths


Eleanor Dare and Lee Weinberg are interested in in the role of embodiment and subjectivity within digital contexts, particularly within the context of programming for the arts. What does programming bring to the arts, how does it change the materiality and ontology of artistic output and conception? Through VAINS (the Visual
Art Interpretation and Navigation System) we explore and offer medium-specific tools for investigating computational artworks. We also bring to this practice an investigation
of the ways in which subjectivity and embodiment might be acknowledged and
deployed within so-called virtual contexts. Together we have developed both software and methodological initiatives that constructively confront curation within a digital domain.

The Open Source Embroidery was inspired by Ele's PhD research investigating the languages of participatory and collaborative practice in new media and socially engaged arts practices. The Open Source Embroidery project investigates the shared characteristics of collaborative production and programming for craft and computing. The project has produced exhibitions, workshops and artworks including the Html Patchwork. Ele is currently facilitating a new artwork called the Embroidered Digital Commons (2009 - current), a distributed embroidery of 'A Concise Lexicon of / for the Digital Commons' written by the Raqs Media Collective, 2003. Each of the 26 terms of the lexicon are stitched by artists, crafters and programmers around the world. 

Ele completed her post doctoral research with CRUMB (Curatorial Resource for Upstart Media Bliss) at the University of Sunderland in 2008. Her curatorial practice-based research focused on socially and politically engaged art activism with and without new technologies.
