as some of you know I completed my PHD this year and I wanted to share the
resulting thesis and practice with you ! (for those who don't know me
personally I am sharing this because I have referenced you or your
institution in my thesis and thought you might be interested).

The research focused on a consideration of the sites offered to community
art  by open data, social media and FLOSS practices. In turn perspectives
developed from community art were used to critically evaluate the
constitution of these sites derived from their underlying methodologies.

>From this research a set of proposals were developed that attempted to
integrate open data methods within community art practice. The abstract can
be seen below.

productive site within community art practice' can be downloaded here:
