this info is a great resource. many thanks.
I would like to address you to a project we recently made with
Bestiario for the ongoing Cultures of Change exhibition at ARS SANTA
MONICA related to mapping the controversies, or at least the different
points of view in evolution in the context of Complexity Sciences.
It's a database on complexity sciences, with two different main
visualizations of data, and a series of online video interviews with
key scientists on complexity and differents keywords selected.
You can take a look at the database here: http://www.culturesdelcanvi.com
You can take a look at the interviews here:
The database "culturesdelcanvi" is made by two different approaches to
database: CANVI and TEMPS.
Canvi (change) and Temps (time) are two navigation spaces within a
network composed of articles, web pages, people and links related to
the field of complexity science. This research, which is both historic
(papers as far back as 1927 are reviewed) and crosscutting (containing
more than 30 categories from different fields and disciplines), offers
a broad overview of the foci, strategies, tactics, research
methodologies and topics of interest that make up the field of
complexity science. Canvi and temps offers two distinct ways to
explore the content and their relationships in this field. The primary
structure of the database is a bipartition made up of content and
tags. Existing relationships between contents and tags suggest new
relationships. The networks emerging point towards interesting
relationships and possible new connections among the contents.
I hope all of you would be able to enjoy it!!
