315 Ten Eyck St, Brooklyn, NY

Workshop tickets: Full price $25 Students $17.50

We are organizing a network mapping workshop at the Radical Networks conference on Oct 21st. Radical Networks is a community conference & arts festival for creative, critical, and alternative applications of Internet technology.

This workshop focuses on the use of complex networks through mapping and analysis in order to expand your thinking about the network as a creative and critical medium. You will start from hands-on drawing exercises and gradually build complex compositions using the Graph Commons platform for collaborative mapping, analyzing, and publishing data-networks. The workshop asks how to extract models from complex systems, how to read those networks with methods such as centrality and cluster analysis, and also includes practice-based work sketching diagrams, editing graph data, and more. As a workshop participant, you will gain creative skills for modeling and analyzing networks, raise new questions and explore answers with your complex data, which would then inform your decisions.

Please bring your laptop!

This workshop is organized by Burak Arikan & Zeyno Ustun.
