Unprecedented amounts of media and data were generated during the Occupy Wall Street protests last fall and continue to emerge through the ongoing movement. A 2-day collaborative Hackathon was held on March 23-24, 2012 to explore, visualize and learn from such this living data archive. The website showcases some of the outcomes, while the projects continue to be developed further. LEARN MORE

Occupy the Media
What role does media play in the making of OWS? What could useful OWS media be? How do we understand this movement through its media? How does the “alternative public sphere” of OWS differ from the media of other global movements?
Join Ramon Campos, Brianne Cole, Piril Gunduz, and Francois Vaxelaire for a hands-on workshop on remixing culture and collective production! Participants will work in teams to remix OWS coverage mined from various sources and create new collaborative vignettes that will become part of the #searchunderoccupy archive.

How has OWS, a dynamic and still-unfolding phenomenon, invoked “archival agency?” What power does that agency wield? How does the swarmchive of OWS promise to continue to write itself and to what transformative end? LEARN MORE
