writing narratives as a swarm

Taming the spaces

Today I tried to map the design experiment findings from Hybrid narrative ecology on top of the foraging behavior in swarms.

writing narratives as a swarm

Every time when individual starts some narratives it leaves a trace and focuses his own attention on certain features. This makes him accumulate more similar narratives until he becomes aware of the story.
So, web 2.0 stories are granular and appear even for the individual as a result of accumulating some idea traces, which works as an environmental feedback to notice more similar traces.
The more the narratives are accumulated, the more attractive and visible the story as a trace becomes, this attracts other individuals as well.
The attention is caught by various trace-leaving techniques like mashing, pulling and aggregating, tagging for social retrieval, social awareness technologies, hybrid maps etc.

Picking up traces of other individuals of the swarm depends on analogy or closeness of the attractors narratives to…

Interplay Under Construction is an interactive exhibition where visitors are invited to explore and experience how the University of the future might collaborate, innovate, theorise and provide new learning and teaching spaces. Artworks and projects by alumni, staff and students are presented to show innovation in teaching and learning practices. The exhibits pose questions to visitors and playfully invite them to answer.

Mark Ingham, Reader in Critical and Nomadic Pedagogies and Paul Myers, LCC’s Director of Change Management will take you on a walking tour of some of the new and innovative learning spaces that have been created at LCC over the last couple of years.

Paul, from his research into learning spaces, will discuss what the characteristics of the pedagogical spaces needed by the college are, as well as the use of neighbourhoods to help support teaching and learning.

Mark will introduce his research into liminal learning spaces, such as the corners, edges, and informal spaces of and between neighbourhoods.  Mark will ask the question: ‘how can we prevent ‘learning-loss’ when we design a space ‘pedagogically’, as much as we do when designing spaces for minimum ‘heat loss’?’ 

Research Fortnight is our annual celebration of research across UAL. This year’s programme at LCC dives deep into the creative work of staff and students. It features events and exhibitions exploring themes of conflict, reconciliation, displacement, refugee experience, and social justice. 

Central to research in our schools of Screen, Design, and Media is a commitment to socially-engaged practice, visible in our teaching and accessible to our students.

Join us as we examine contemporary cultural politics through creative practice.

4 – 15 March 2019.
