This project is an inquiry toward identifying and observing the unknown commons (material and immaterial), with the primary objective of increasing our theoretical understanding of the spatial dimension of commons. 

The primary line of inquiry is about the heuristics of commons. Regardless of the object/scale/scope, x-commons is not about the question "what" but "how," i.e., how the commons work and how the commons can be explicated. In this regard, x-commons is a collector of commons' heuristics.

The current theme is about the underlying infrastructure of things, protocols, concepts, and presuppositions that inform the project of design and planetary governance at the time of surveillant environmental mandate.

x-commons, as a network, forum, collection, and a publication, strives to become an international collaborative of spatial thinkers, aimed at advancing the research/knowledge around the questions of commons plus aesthetics.
