Sem­aS­pace is a tool for 2d- and 3d-visua­li­za­ti­on of net­work-like orga­ni­zed data. This can be seman­tic net­works but also soci­al net­work struc­tures and much more. Besi­de text frag­ments also image datas can be inte­gra­ted into the net­work. On this evening dif­fe­rent ques­ti­ons will be con­si­de­red like the dif­fe­ren­ces bet­ween Sem­aS­pace and other tools like Pajek. Fur­ther­mo­re spe­ci­fic examp­les, e. g. seman­tic net­works of the Ars Elec­tro­ni­ca and lin­ked image datas of dia­gram­ma­tic ques­ti­ons and term ana­ly­sis on the sub­ject “atmo­s­phe­res-design” will be pre­sen­ted and dis­cus­sed.

Diet­mar Offen­hu­ber is key rese­ar­cher at the Lud­wig Boltz­mann Insti­tu­te for Media.Art.Research and pro­fes­sor at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Arts Linz. He is a foun­ding mem­ber of Ars Elec­tro­ni­ca Future­lab, stu­di­ed archi­tec­tu­re at the TU Vien­na and Media Arts and Sci­en­ces at the MIT Media Lab.
