Graph Commons Workshop: Mapping Civic Data Networks
with Burak Arikan
This workshop is focusing on the use of complex networks through mapping and visual analysis in order to expand your thinking about the network as a creative and critical medium.
Saturday: 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm Public Lecture (obligatory for participants)
The Graph Commons Workshop by Turkish Media Artist and Programmer Burak Arikan is focusing on the use of complex networks through mapping and visual analysis in order to expand our thinking about the network as a creative and critical medium. Workshop participants use the Graph Commons platform for collaborative mapping and network analysis using their own research data. The workshop asks how to map complex networks, how to read those networks with methods such as graph analysis, and also includes practice-based work sketching diagrams, drawing graphs, and more. As a workshop participant, you gain creative skills to answer your complex data questions, which would then inform your decisions.
