data [h]ac[k]tIvISm and vISualIzatIon WorkShop Offray Vladimir Luna Cárdenas and Fernando Castro Toro Colombia A critical approach towards data as a human, social and political construct is becoming more crucial if we want to build a plural world that is mediated by data. Data justifies, creates and directs social and political agendas, so a critical and political understanding of it is important in scenarios like postconflict and peace building, which are coming to Colombia.

The workshop will present a historical quick overview of alternatives ways computing that blur the distinction between app, document, development environment and programming languages, and the ones between user and developer , to enter in the hands on experience, learning the basic syntax, data formats (JSON), first app and first data visualization that will be published online and shared via twitter to “hack” the feedback loops of social networks and trace the feedback (or its absence) from peace actors.

The workshop Villages of the world, a technological aesthetic mediation of identities and territories, consists of the creation of a video installation based on the collective construction of contents based on identity, memory and heritage. The video installation seeks to generate new ways for the habitants of the San José sector of the city of Manizales, Caldas, Colombia (known for their problems of territorial organization) to relate to each other and to their territory through technological mediation, collective construction and participatory approach to community social empowerment. ‘Las Aldeas del Mundo’ consists of three moments (diagnosing and reflecting, questioning and doing, concluding, proposing and visualizing) characterized by experiential dialogues about identity, memories and heritage in relation to the territory, generating the video installation as a product.

The instructional methods will be based on the Community of Practice (CoP) approach, that present learning spaces as simulacra of the social dynamics in CoP and a bridge to the existing ones. We will create permanent and fluid real time collaborative memories via etherpads that will be reified in interactive notebooks and source code repositories.
