Open Studio

In an open studio on the premises of the MuseumsQuartier, Artistic Technology Research presents the results of their collaboration with the Utrecht media lab SETUP during the month of November. Together, they engaged in mapping the collaboration and communication within production communities. Mailinglists, Twitter communication, search queries and online repositories constitute instable and often neglected repositories of social interaction online. Using these data for visualizations and for a mapping of how communication and interaction developed made explicit how online discourse evolves, which actors matter and what traces of online life can tell about participants and social formations. The results are data analysis, network visualizations and infographics which make the implicit interactions as well as the often neglected 'digital imprints' of internet use explicitly visible. On display are Data Portraits by Frank-Jan van Lunteren, network visualizations by Ryanne Turenhout and data analysis by Matthias Tarasiewicz.
