The commons aren't what they used to be. Our starting point is the differences between The Commons as in pre-enclosure land, space, location, and the litigious space of intellectual property negotiations described by Creative Commons and related licences. These differences are the basis of a story that starts with the enclosure of Kennington Park ex-common in South London, heads through the fictional Northwest Passage of the early colonial Americas and ends up at the private view of a 'locative media' art installation on a farm somewhere in rural Latvia. The moral of the story comes at the end (of course) with some practical, political attempts to re-connect these two concepts of the 'commons'.
