Behavior/time - Creative strategies for culture and education

Behavior/time builds interactive visualizations used for pedagogy, like those employed in French high schools to spatialize and teach poetry. We have also grown social movements like the Dear Black Women Project, a thriving community of affirmation-based support, as well as brought to life humanitarian research such as SMS Pantry, which provides critical resources to people with food insecurity in the USA. metaLAB at Harvard, Paris-Sorbonne Université, Harvard Art Museums, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard Graduate School of Design, Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, Piaggio Fast Forward, University of Michigan School of Information, The Dear Black Women Project, Alliance Française, New Geographies | Harvard University Press, Kiwiversity, The Ateliers Jean Nouvel, Japan Disaster Digital Archive

Collisions: Culture and Medium

Designed at and hosted by metaLAB at Harvard.





Which culture represented in the Harvard Art Museum’s collections favor watercolor on paper as a medium of expression? With this tool, museum curators and scholars can collide two qualities, such as medium and culture, to generate illustrative, partitioned volumes which help them better quantify intersections and overlaps within their collections.

This project is part of a collection of interactive visualization tools which help people make arguments about art collections. It was built for a “satellite” version of the Curarium platform. The text was written by scholar Matthew Battles.
