Flat Earth

Analyze, find patterns, deny them and then imagine.

The goal of Flat Earth is to reverse an evidence of your field of investigation in order to come up with a brand new idea. Collect a set of digital traces, find a pattern or a common behaviour, state an assumption based on it and then deny the assumption. Due to this denial you will turn the tide and stimulate the conversation inside the working group. Thanks to Digital Methods these evidence can be extracted from social networks and you can use the metadata in your dataset to guide your operations. Flat Earth will allow the working group to let go of the framework-preconceptions and formulate new ideas that can be transferred back into the real world.
