Participatory design experiment: Storytelling Swarm in Hybrid Narrative Ecosystem

Taming the spaces

I have struggled in formulating the narrative swarming in hybrid ecosystem as a participatory design experiment. This paper describes a participatory design experiment that is influenced by the swarming activity. The results of writing narratives as a swarm in a hybrid ecosystem are presented. hybrid ecology narrative ecology participatory design research swarming

Ontobrands as prototypical stories attract stigmergic narrative mediation and swarming

Stigmergic narrative action may initiate swarming phenomena in ontospace. Swarming actions took place around perceived stories as attractor areas in ontospace. swarming

writing narratives as a swarm

Taming the spaces

Today I tried to map the design experiment findings from Hybrid narrative ecology on top of the foraging behavior in swarms. writing narratives as a swarm. Picking up traces of other individuals of the swarm depends on analogy or closeness of the attractors to your own. dedicating narrative pierces for the story), cloning may also make the trace of the narrative more visible due to the swarm activity and it becomes hyped up.

Swarming to write narratives in hybrid ecosystem

Taming the spaces

Swarming to write narratives in hybrid ecosystem. It is the way how we can later connect it to the swarming behaviour (making and following the signal trace means basically that people notice ontodimensions and start accumulating/monitoring these ontodimensions).

Swarm - my first search in Communities and Networks

Taming the spaces

Swarm seems not yet so popular tag (i tested in Delicious and in Technorati it is mentioned less than 100 times a day). Today i did my first search with the very potential swarm keyword in Communities and Networks Connection hub. For me swarm describes activities in hybrid ecologies better than networks.

Swarms, semiotic fitness, ecologies - ideas triggered from J.Hoffmeyer’s papers

Taming the spaces

I have been reading some articles of Jesper Hoffmeyer about the swarms, semiotics, semiosphere and ecologies and doing some thought connections with niches, affordances in new learning ecologies. The translation from cues/traces left in the environment and the relevant actions of the communities are explainable with the swarm-phenomena and with the general cultural semiosphere model. These cues determine the semiotic niche for the swarm community. The swarming body.

Timespace, what else

Taming the spaces

We have been writing personal narratives and collaborating in the non-determined manner, presumably we have simulated something swarm-like. If i could map more than one person into this space, i could see something similar to ant-road in our little narrative ecology swarm.

Ecology of Embodied Narratives in the Age of Locative Media

Taming the spaces

We found that individual and collaborative activity in a hybrid ecosystem could be described on the basis of the swarming concept from biology. In Cognitive Philology, Vol 2 (2009). Ecology of Embodied Narratives in the Age of Locative Media and Social Networks: a Design Experiment. Kai Pata, Anatole Pierre Fuksas. Abstract. A Design-based research tested a Hybrid Ecosystem emerging from collaborative storytelling supported by geo-locative technologies and Social Networking Services.

Ontobranding: how reality promotes itself

Taming the spaces

We wrote with Mauri in our forthcoming book-chapter for IGI Gobal “Participatory design experiment: Storytelling Swarm in Hybrid Narrative Ecosystem&# that one representation of hybrid ecosystem is ontospace, which consists of ontodimensions – descriptive features of an entity within a domain of information (eg. However, this activity is not centrally coordinated, but may appear in the swarming kind of behaviours.

First day we played a bit around the conceptual ideas and then suggested a simple environment for swarm-like story-writing. Recently we launched with Anatole Fuksas a course Ecology of narratives. Actually, this course is an experiment for exploring the properties of narrative hybrid ecologies. From then on the experiment is running until middle of March. The central place is Tallinn but we soon realized that the narrative itself directs the story.

d) monitoring others and resulting in collaborative action that is not coordinated centrally (participatory surveillance, swarming). Tonight i started to think of the nature of networks , but particularly of the transformations that take place while we go from one type of network to another type. I think from the ecosystem point of view, mapping the reasons of this transformation and how much it is really happening is interesting.

Since Grasse’s research, stigmergy has been applied to the self-organisation of ants, artificial life, swarm intelligence and more recently, the Internet itself. Another interesting article (2006) - key points I think are relevant but overlooked when it comes to the concept of stigmerg y and its influence on collaboration: the role of communication to enable effective collaboration, and the influence of "social negotiation" to guide the collaboration process of small teams.
