"The Urban Fabric" is a public intervention in which people participate by marking significant places into a hand-embroidered map of their city. They mark both positive and negative places by sewing symbols into the map with thread. For example: "Where is the heart of the city?", "Where is a place that is positive for the community?", "Where is a place which needs changes?", "Where is an unsafe place?". Participants are also free to embroider personal images and words freely into the borders of the map.

This project has taken place in Fez (Morocco), Quito (Ecuador), Bangalore (India), Barcelona (Spain), and in New York City (USA). To see interviews from the other cities, see Liz Kueneke´s vimeo page:
