'I was here', created by an unknown artist at BildMuseet, Umea, Sweden, June 2009

As part of the Open Source Embroidery exhibition, curated by Ele Carpenter, we invited visitors to graffiti-stitch a settee and a pair of armchairs whilst they listened (via the headphones) to a selection of audio tracks created by the Sampler-Culture Clash collective. An amazing new archive of embroidered thoughts, names and images has been created, transforming the chairs from their original blank canvases into a new collective work.
