* Social Aesthetics

Mar 2007

Biomemetics is an interactive animated visualization of the exchange of media and the structure of popularity within the largest online social network, Myspace.com. This interactive visualization supports large-scale social research by enabling online ethnographers to visually identify social structures and observe the distribution of media. Artistically, Biomemetics seeks to represent large-scale online social activity as a biological process, generating an abstracted portrayal of the human social “super-organism”.
