The Geospatial Characteristics of a Social Movement Communication Network

Social movements rely in large measure on networked communication technologies to organize and disseminate information relating to the movements’ objectives. In this work we seek to understand how the goals and needs of a protest movement are reflected in the geographic patterns of its communication network, and how these patterns differ from those of stable political communication. To this end, we examine an online communication network reconstructed from over 600,000 tweets from a thirty-six week period covering the birth and maturation of the American anticapitalist movement, Occupy Wall Street. We find that, compared to a network of stable domestic political communication, the Occupy Wall Street network exhibits higher levels of locality and a hub and spoke structure, in which the majority of non-local attention is allocated to high-profile locations such as New York, California, and Washington D.C.(...)

In the early days of the Web there was a lot of experimenting going on. It was a brand new world where almost anything seemed possible. Decades later, many of those dreams have come true and new dreams have been born.

Les collages grotesques de Colin Raff, artiste visuel et écrivain, installé à Berlin.

Interview de l'auteur en anglais sur le blog Elvis in Hawaii
http://elvisinh.blogspot.com/2008/10/normal-0-14-false-false-false.html

Un extrait:
"[...]Image manipulation. I begin by selecting elements as for a collage, but today’s exciting appliances further allow one to scale, skew, fondle and otherwise perturb the source material so that the result is alien to the ingredients.

I should mention that I am actually a writer (by trade, temperament, and grander intent), and view this visual work simply as ornament, subordinate to the text. When a piece of mine is purely graphic, I see it as assuming the condition of text, and when it operates completely outside of narrative, then to me it has adopted a complementary role by performing some extra-literary function. These relations are always present, if not apparent. Anyway, synthesizing an original image out of found sources is not unlike composing a sentence out of extant words.[...]"

"The past week we’ve seen a lot of chatter about how cinemagraphs are elevating the GIF to fine art, thanks in large part to an article in The Atlantic that ruffled some feathers in the art community. And while there’s no denying that the GIF is undergoing an unlikely renaissance some 20 years after it first showed up to animate our web experience in 1987[...]"
