We now offer high quality large-format prints of network visualizations created using a combination of our own software (Textexture), open-source Gephi platform, iterative algorithms, fuzzy logic, trial and error, as well as intuition, magic, science, and experiment.
It is possible to order prints of the already existing text network visualizations or to create custom-made prints using your own source data (any text, social network, or any other connectivity that can be represented as a network).
When we read a text, we normally follow it in quite a linear fashion: from left to right, from top to bottom. Even when we skim articles quickly online, the trajectory is still the same. However, this is not the most efficient method of reading: in the age of hypertext we tend to create our own narratives using the bits and pieces from different sources.
As a response to this challenge we at Nodus Labs developed a new free online software tool Textexture.Com, which visualizes any text as a network and enables the user to use this interactive visualization to read through the text in a non-linear fashion.
Polysingularity is a practice of maintaining several dynamic singularities at once. Within social context this implies the existence of several communities, which are segregated enough to operate independently from one another, but are sufficiently integrated in order to be able to synchronize on the global level. Together with specialists from Transnomia Institute we developed a social experiment that allows participants to experience polysingularity in a protected social setting.
A very interesting paper by Kitano “Biological Robustness” (published in 2004 in Nature Genetics journal) offers a very insightful summary on what biological robustness is and how it emerges in networks. Kitano demonstrates how small-world architecture and the existence of an interconnected core control center both increase the robustness of a system.
