Revisting the organizational charts through the concept of affinity and governance

The Affinity Map is a data visualization created during my doctoral studies at EPFL.

It relies on the idea to represent one faculty through the actual and potential collaborations between its members, in order to foster a top-down and a bottom-up visualization.

This visual method makes a lot of attention to the way in which individuals are represented by exploring ethical questions concerning individual identity and personal representation.

More information is avaialble on the journal article Mapping Affinities in Academic Organizations and the thesis Mapping Affinities: Visualizing Academic Practice Through Collaboration.
