String Figures is a project developed by artist Ailie Rutherford and design researcher Bettina Nissen with creative technologist Bob Moyler to allow activist, feminist and creative groups working for social justice to support and strengthen each other’s work through de-centralised open-source networks centred on a principle of mutual care. This mapping process can be used with local and translocal collectives looking to further support each other in anti-capitalist work. The mapping process and symbols are the work of artist Ailie Rutherford.
