An embroidered organogram

I spent half of August and September in Aarhus, Denmark, undertaking a Researcher Employability Project as part of my WRoCAH doctoral scholarship. This involved spending time at the Godsbanen cultural production facility, observing interactions in the Open Workshops, with the aim of producing a creative output and a report on my findings.

The embroidered organogram I created shows the structure of the staffing in the workshops, and will be used to show how the spaces function. The video-collage below offers a view of the development of the piece.

The process has built on methods used in my stitch journal, and has employed ethnographic research techniques such as participant observation for its content. It has inspired further thoughts about embroidered data visualisation and interpretation, and I’m now thinking about other opportunities to use this approach.
