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.
The framework of networks can be very useful when thinking about social dynamics. The people are represented as the nodes and their interactions are the connections between them. Using this model we demonstrate how someone can become influential in a social context in just a few not very obvious steps.
