Abstract :: Massive Comprehension Machine is an audiovisual device for simultaneous navigation in two semantic networks generated in real time facing a unique concept: the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but addressed from two opposing views: the media that operates on one or other side of the border. Can semantic netwoks map thoughts? Can they disclose structures that reflect the way we see the world? This device allows the investigation between the subjectivity and imaginary of one and other, and also from the subjectivity of the visitor, dealing with the complexity of one of the greatest conflicts inherited from the 20th century.

Abstract No site www.sescsp.org.br/santoamaroemrede, estudiosos, jornalistas e o público em geral interessado em produção cultural terão acesso às informações sobre cada grupo, bem como uma amostra de seu trabalho, em vídeo, texto, e imagem, além do banco de dados quantitativo e qualitativo levantado pelos pesquisadores do projeto. Ao longo de quase dois anos, os pesquisadores mapearam 326 grupos culturais, artistas individuais, entidades e equipamentos públicos na zona sul de São Paulo. “A gente já conhecia a maioria das pessoas que fez parte do projeto. Mas o bom do mapeamento é que a gente pôde ter alguma coisa mais concreta. Para nós nos auto-reconhecermos, é importante”, explica Diko. Ao longo do estudo, os 22 pesquisadores envolvidos descobriram, localizaram, descreveram e classificaram artístico-culturais de uma região que começava no Campo Belo, passando por Capão Redondo e Jardim Ângela, e abrangendo até municípios vizinhos como Diadema, Embu, Itapecerica e Taboão, em um total de 19 localidades, entre subprefeituras e municípios adjacentes.

Abstract Grassroots Mapping is a series of participatory mapping projects involving communities in cartographic dispute, started by Jeffrey Warren of the MIT Media Lab‘s Center for Future Civic Media. This January 2010, Jeff Warren worked with a series of organizations and communities to produce maps with children and adults from several communities in Lima, including the Cantagallo settlement of Shipibo on the bank of the Rimac and the Juan Pablo II community in Villa El Salvador. Seeking to invert the traditional power structure of cartography, the grassroots mappers used helium balloons and kites to loft their own "community satellites" made with inexpensive digital cameras. The resulting images, which are owned by the residents, are georeferenced and stitched into maps which are 100x higher resolution that those offered by Google, at extremely low cost. In some cases these maps may be used to support residents' claims to land title. By creating open-source tools to include everyday people in exploring and defining their own geography, we hopes to enable a diverse set of alternative agendas and practices, and to emphasize the fundamentally narrative and subjective aspects of mapping over its use as a medium of control.
