Large-scale RDF Graph Visualization Tools AI3 Assembles 26 Candidate Tools The pending UMBEL subject concept “backbone” ontology will involve literally thousands of concepts. In order to manage and view such a large structure, a concerted effort to find suitable graph visualization software was mounted. This post presents the candidate listing, as well as some useful starting resources and background information. The Graphic Continuum — Information is Beautiful Awards The Graphic Continuum is our view of the many different types of visualizations available to us when we encode and present data. We’ve plotted nearly 90 different graphics across five main categories: Distribution, Time, Comparing Categories, Geospatial, Part-to-Whole, and Relationships. The space does not include every type of graphic, nor does it display every link between visualizations, but we view it as a thought-starter. We hope readers will use it to develop ideas, consider different options, or simply as a piece of art.

Get Smart by Charlie Finch Noam Chomsky argues that late capitalism is about using surplus value to create products which we don't really need that clutter and confuse our lives.

Embodying Ethics: Endangered by Rohan Chhabra London designer Rohan Chhabra has adapted a range of hunter jackets so they transform into models of endangered animals (+ slideshow). For his Embodying Ethics: Endangered project, Rohan Chhabra took hunting attire and formed it into the shapes of the animals threatened by the activity. "The project aims to use design to inform the issue of extinction of critically endangered species," said Chhabra. His range includes representations of a mountain gorilla, an Asian elephant, a tiger, a saiga antelope and a rhino. All five weatherproof jackets looks similar in their original forms but Chabbra has added extra zips and poppers in different places on each, so elements can be altered and reshaped into the individual animals. Toggles are positioned to look like eyes and fabric folds create ears.

Research - Repurposing Research Research areas - Digital culture and emergent media - Participatory networks and sharing economies - Media activism and strategies for citizen engagement - Artivism and Hacktivism - Surveillance, dataveillance and policing in the digital age My current research investigates changing notions of participation and collaboration that are mediated by information architectures, data and metadata. In particular, I am interested in understanding how artists, activists and grassroots groups use social media platforms for collaboration and advocacy, and how software and interfaces condition collaborative practices and transform political habits, and cultural and aesthetic values.
