El mapeo de trayectorias / nuevas comunidades

les dejo esta liga a un experimento interesante http://lust.nl/#projects-5297

LUST is a multidisciplinary graphic design practice established in 1996 by Jeroen Barendse, Thomas Castro, and Dimitri Nieuwenhuizen, based in The Hague, Netherlands. LUST works in a broad spectrum of media including traditional printwork and book design, abstract cartography and data-visualisations, new media and interactive installations, and architectural graphics. Moreover, LUST is deeply interested in exploring new pathways for design at the cutting edge where new media and information technologies, architecture and urban systems and graphic design overlap.

This fascination led to establishing LUSTlab in the summer of 2010. LUSTlab is more than a new form of Research & Development. LUSTlab goes further than observing, inventing and producing, by means of forming a platform where knowledge, issues and ideologies can be shared.

LUSTlab researches, generates hypotheses and makes unstable media stable again. The future of digital media lies in the design of its use. Humanizing the unhuman, bringing the internet down to earth and finding the missing link between the digital and the physical. The outcomes vary from (strategic) visions to new communication tools, man-machine installations and physical products using digital content.

Cover for the 2/2013 issue of Dutch magazine Stedenbouw + Ruimtelijke Ordening. The theme of the issue is New Towns, also called planned communities. 

The visualization shows the routes of people passing through the New Towns throughout their day. The lines that connect the cities contain the text of the tweets, and the color of the letters represents the time of the day when the tweet was posted.

The policy for the former growing centers has constantly been accompanied by discussions about what their suburbs actually are. The new cities are in fact originated in the tension between urbanity and sub-urbanity. The dominant discourse is that they are not urban enough. There has been much criticism of their lack of urban amenities, identity and historical and spatial layering. Another, more recent discourse is about decay: a gradual process of decline has be observed in the new towns. But despite their bad reputation with outsiders, most residents of the New Towns seem to be satisfied, as suggested by a number of urban sociological studies in Zoetermeer, Nieuwegein and Almere.

Geolocalized tweets constitute a good data pool to look at. From about half million of tweets spanning the period of a week, we filtered out only those by users that are related to one or more Dutch New Towns. In this way, the conversations of people related to these towns create a typographic cloud shaped like the country.

All week

From the single visualizations, some patterns are visible. For instance, in the weekend there’s a higher presence of green lines, due to people’s increased activity on Friday and Saturday night. On the other hand, monday barely has any green lines; blue is dominant instead, denoting people’s activity while going to work around 7-9 AM.
