Bio Mapping - Christian Nold

Crowd PhD

2006 - forever

I want to study for a PhD about the historical visualisation of the "crowd". My previous research on this subject has included theoretical texts like the book Mobile Vulgus and the essay Legible Mob published in Making Things Public by MIT edited by Bruno Latour and Peter Weibel. On the practice side my Community Edit, Crowd Compiler and Bio Mapping

I am planning to use this as a space for articulating ways to frame my research. If anyone has any suggestions for the right university or supervisors please get in touch.

It has been an enourmous long time since I last updated this! I have never been a blog person, and felt irritated by the way new media culture pushes us to be constantly visible to the world. Recently though I kept getting email from people wondering what I was up to. So today is my birthday and I have finally given in :) . So a quick update I am excited about what Rob van Kranenburg and I are calling the Internet of People - which will be a book coming out in the next few months. I am also exstatic about trying to build and map alternative currencies. Take a look at the Bijlmer Euro project. In the last year I have also been building a unique mapping software called Sensory Journeys and the Town Toolkits for which I will build a proper site. On Saturday I am off to Helsinki for the Pixeache festival where I am preseting some work but more importantly working on and island toolkit for the next year. More info soon...
