A City-based Model for Topographical Thinking

Posted by on Nov 25, 2013 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping

[Submitted by Adam Foster] This model has two direct influences, and those are Gilles Deleuze and Sim City 4.  Bridging the notions of space presented in these seemingly disparate sources offers the possibility for an exciting new model for engaging in criticism. In A Thousand Plateaus, Deleuze (and Guattari) argue for the binary of interiority […]

A Reconsideration of Edges

Posted by on Nov 4, 2013 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping, Projects

[Submitted by Marc Muschler] Edges are the connections that can be made within the NewRadial environment which visually demonstrate a relationship between nodes and allow for users to comment on that relation. They are a fundamental aspect of NewRadial through their generation of discourse between users, but this is complicated by the utilization of critical […]

INKE’s Modelling and Prototyping As Nomad Thought

Posted by on Oct 28, 2013 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping

[Submitted by Adam Foster] After having talked about the rhizome and its relationship to the act of scholarship in my last blog post, I wish to move on to what I think are the consequences of using it are; or, in other words, the shift in thinking that I would argue the rhizome engenders. To […]

The Narrative Dilemma of NewRadial

Posted by on Oct 16, 2013 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping, Projects

[Submitted by Marc Muschler] In his most recent blog post, Adam Foster brings to light the idea of cartography in relation to the NewRadial engine and how the program can be utilized to essentially map one’s way through the critical scholarship of a particular field to visually represent an argument or discussion. This is an […]

Rhizomes, NewRadial, And The Problem of Cartographies

Posted by on Oct 10, 2013 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping, Projects

[Submitted by Adam Foster] In my last blog post, I conceived of the act of scholarship as being like travelling down a road, with scholarly criticism being detours to help you get from point A to point B. I’ve been persuaded otherwise by Marc Mueshler. We should think of reading as being detached from temporality […]

Temporality and the NewRadial Model

Posted by on Oct 3, 2013 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping, Projects

[Submitted by Marc Muschler] INKE’s current focus on the journal and the monograph presents a new and interesting challenge for the modeling and prototyping team of NewRadial regarding the visualization of critical scholarship and the source text. As Adam Foster mentions in his blog entry, a tension exists between primary and secondary sources that requires […]

Towards a Model of Spatially Mapping Criticism Onto The Primary Text

Posted by on Sep 25, 2013 in Blog, Modeling/Prototyping

[contributed by Adam Foster] One of the key concepts that I’ve has arisen for me while working with INKE thus far is the tension between the primary text and secondary scholarship or criticism. Much of the new digital environments I’ve uncovered thus far hints that increasingly, the primary text becomes a part of the work […]
