The city as network - Social Physics | #dataviz #UrbanFlows

The city as network - Social Physics | #dataviz #UrbanFlows | Data and Algorithms. Everyday life and culture | Scoop.it
Traditionally, cities have been viewed as the sum of their locations – the buildings, monuments, squares and parks that spring to mind when we think of ‘New York’, ‘London’ or ‘Paris’. In The new science of cities (Amazon US| Amazon UK), Michael Batty argues that a more productive approach is to think of cities in terms of …

sandra alvaro's insight:

Flows are not just the connectors between these important locations. Rather, the locations become important because – at least in part – they’re at the intersections.

Cities and network analysis.

 

Viewing cities as networks allows us to use the toolbox of network analysis on them, employing concepts such as ‘cores’ and ‘peripheries’, ‘centrality’, and ‘modules’. Batty says that an understanding of how different types of network intersect will be the key that really unlocks our understanding of cities.

 

Cities, like many other types of network, also seem to be modular, hierarchical, and scale-free – in other words, they show similar patterns at different scales. It’s often said that London is a series of villages, with their own centres and peripheries. but the pattern also repeats when you zoom out and look at the relationships between cities. One can see this in the way that London’s influence really extends across Europe, and in the way that linked series of cities, or ‘megalopolises‘, are growing in places such as the eastern seaboard of the US, Japan’s ‘Taiheiyō Belt‘, or the Pearl River Delta in China.

Chinanet is an autonomous internet, separated from the rest of the word and characterised by a different usage that is more about performance than participation
sandra alvaro's insight:

The implementation of the Internet in China reveals the effects of introducing a global technology in a differentiated local space. Unlike the case of Egypt, where the banning of Facebook by President Mubarak led to a mass protest on the streets, Chinese authorities have been able to control and limit the medium by means of complex technology and the use of a shopping mall-style development model. A delimited, controlled commercial space that citizens use without being aware of the potentiality of public space, or of the attacks on their privacy. It is a recreational space, in which in spite of the control and surveillance, net-citizens are becoming actors, cheerful, anonymous performers of new models of behaviour and new forms of subjectivation, against a backdrop in which an incipient civil society is seeking strategies for joint participation.

Making a DIFFERENCE / A Difference in Making - Materialise 3D

Making a DIFFERENCE / A Difference in Making - Materialise 3D | Data and Algorithms. Everyday life and culture | Scoop.it

The exhibition explores the added value of 3D Printing – a groundbreaking manufacturing technology likely to be critical in the next decades – for the lives of individuals, our society and the environment. The exhibition features 3D-printed works of art, design, engineering and scientific fields by renowned artists, designers, public initiatives and prestigious research institutions, as well as by unknown innovative makers.

 

MAKING A DIFFERENCE / A DIFFERENCE IN MAKING looks at 3D Printing with both the eyes of fascination and a deeper observation of its consequences. Visitors are invited to discover a production technology that allows us to make things differently, and also ponder how it can help individuals, enable social changes and positively contribute to the environment. In other words, how 3D Printing is making a difference.

The exhibition is curated by Marta Malé-Alemany and is organized to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Materialise, a pioneering Belgian company dedicated to the engineering, development and application of 3D Printing.
