Description

Network Mapping and Analysis: A Workshop

Burak Arikan, Artist and Educator // TECH 521, DESIGN 733

Wednesday, August 10th from 6:00 - 8:00 pm

Network mapping is a popular and highly creative medium. From the popularity of The Tipping Point's theories about social networks to the widely heralded infographics on nytimes.com, industry leaders are turning their knowledge of trends into engaging visuals. This two hour workshop will help students understand complex networks of information through mapping and visual analysis.

Beginning with simple, hands-on drawing exercises, participants will gradually learn how to build complex compositions on a computer program. The workshop will cover network modeling, relationship types, visual analysis, centralities, clustering, and information design. Students will learn through a combination of observing, sketching, collaborating, and participating in group discussions.

The workshop will consist of two parts: Part I will cover how to map networks, and Part II will teach students how to analyze them. Students will use Graph Commons for visualization and group collaboration exercises. There are no prerequisites.
