Colourful social network mesh – Map Me by Hugh Davies

No sound or mobile media in this project – and still I was intrigued by the beauty and simplicity of it.

Map Me by Hugh Davies is a beautiful networking and social mapping exercise I encountered at conflux. Starting off with only a few cards and strings it evolved into a dense and colourful mesh of conflux visitors who pinned their cards to the wall, linking it up with other people they met at the festival. Some hands-on, physical, material and fun networking. In these pictures you can see the early stages. I have some video from the later stages and will try to edit it sometime. Was a great opportunity to chat to people, get details of someone who’s card you forgot to ask for and also to do some crafty things like cutting bits of string, and to show off with some sailing knots ūüėČ
