Rhizome | The Universal Texture

Rhizome | The Universal Texture | Categorizing + Curating In Life and On Line | Scoop.it

The Universal Texture is a Google patent for mapping textures onto a 3D model of the entire globe.

 

It is an automated, statistical, incessant, universal representation that selectively chooses its data. (For one, there is no ‘night’ in Google’s version of Earth.) The system edits a particular representation of the world. The software edits, re-assembles, processes and packages reality in order to form a very specific and useful model. These collected images feel alien, because they are clearly an incorrect representation of the earth’s surface. And it is precisely because humans did not directly create these images that they are so fascinating. They are created by an algorithm that finds nothing wrong in these moments. They are less a creation, than a kind of fact - a representation of the laws of the Universal Texture.

Time-Lapse | e-flux | Categorizing + Curating In Life and On Line | Scoop.it

Time-Lapse challenges the notion that an exhibition is a fixed entity with artworks that remain consistent throughout the time the exhibition in on view. Time-Lapse explores the possibility of a more dynamic exhibition environment by including artworks that change over time and utilizing curatorial structures that are based on change. With hourly, daily, and weekly alterations to the works in the show, no two days of Time-Lapse will be the same.

Free | Categorizing + Curating In Life and On Line | Scoop.it

“Free” explores how the internet has fundamentally changed our landscape of information and our notion of public space. Today, our shared space has expanded beyond streets and schools to more distributed forms of collectivity. What constitutes this expanded public is not only greater social connectedness but a highly visual, hybrid commons of information.

Assessing messy learning | Dangerously Irrelevant

Assessing messy learning | Dangerously Irrelevant | Categorizing + Curating In Life and On Line | Scoop.it

… our school assessment lives primarily in the bottom left part of that graph … we rarely if ever get to the “immeasurable” stuff that resides toward the top right. To put it another way, we focus in schools on that which is quantifiable when, I think, our real value as places of learning rests in that messy stuff that isn’t.

Just signed up for the beta invite, looks interesting, hope it don't take 2 months to get it (LOL). Let us know what you think.
digitalassetman's comment, May 30, 2012 12:27 PM
Looks like a nice idea ... However, signing up for the beta with an email address is fine. Then they want you to spam your contacts before you even get a chance to see how it works.

Then an email follow up which states the following "The more of your friends sign up, the higher you jump in the waiting list queue"

#fail ... but thanks for sharing

Understanding the Value of Curation for Education: Nancy White

Understanding the Value of Curation for Education: Nancy White | Categorizing + Curating In Life and On Line | Scoop.it

What does curation mean from an educational viewpoint? And what is the key difference between "collecting" and "curating".

 

"The first thing I realized is that in order to have value-added benefits to curating information, the collector needs to move beyond just classifying the objects under a certain theme to deeper thinking through a) synthesis and b) evaluation of the collected items.

I especially like how she used the Bloom's Taxonomy and related that to curation.

Consisting of a temporary cultural journalism institute and broadcast center in Bologna, and an alternative arts multimedia channel online, Ælia Media responds to an important tradition of alternative radio in Bologna, connected to the student movement of 1977. It functions in two capacities: a training ground for active and aspiring cultural producers, involving a work group of 20 young people from different artistic backgrounds, and a broadcast program in a variety of media (print, radio, web) with a focus on engagement through live participation and online social networks, from visual arts to theatre to music.
