Marenko, B. and Benqué, D. (2019) ‘Speculative diagrams: Experiments in mapping Youtube’, in Method & Critique; frictions and shifts in RTD. Research Through Design, TU Delft. doi: https://doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.7855811.v1.
Betti Marenko and I presented a paper at the 2019 Research Through Design Conference: Method & Critique, frictions and shifts in RTD. This was a development of my previous work attempting to map recommendations on Youtube. I developed a new visualisation that focuses on individual traces, following individual paths through Youtube indefinitely. The paper is framed by our ongoing conversation linking design theory, critical practice, algorithmic prediction, and diagrams.
