Stage Spaces for Research Actors
Interdisciplinarity is not an easy solution for complex questions, it is also a problem in itself. Academic disciplines are not strictly separated units of knowledge, they are ambiguous, diverse, changing and include a multitude of perspectives. Therefore, understanding the knowledge structures behind labels, finding implicitly related actors and designing interdisciplinary projects becomes more and more important. The ID+Lab has researched interdisciplinary structures and is introducing a modeling method to describe them. This method will be explained, exemplified and applied on an interdisciplinary publication platform.

Exploring the ID+Stage dataspace: a Virtual Reality information visualisation case study 
GNOSIS is a Virtual Reality artifact and music album combining retroarcade-styled puzzle gameplay, interactive data visualisation and artistic performance, all set to a kaleidoscopic soundtrack and dance performance. Dive into audiovisual cyberspace and explore a large network of knowledge unfolding around you.

Knowledge in Communication Networks
Knowledge and culture are rooted in social networks of communication. Diverse social contexts where actors frequently meet and interact – formal organizations like universities, the academic field, public discourse – always house such networks. These act as „parasites“, feeding on the context and frequently undermining it. Two examples for network effects in science are the orientation to central “stars” and the formation of competing “schools” of densely connected authors.
