On Connectedness

Video interview with Albert - László Barabási, Network scientist, Professor at Northeastern University and at Department of Medicine at Harvard Medical School

Judit Angel

The video interview with network scientist Albert – László Barabási describes the social network by drawing a parallel with other network-based complex systems (the Internet, the economy and biological systems), highlights community, linking and interaction as generic properties of networks, and elaborates on contemporary art as a system in which value is created by a network. The video functions as an introduction to the Small/Big World project and it is part of the exhibition in tranzit.sk
