Polyhedral animation of IPRA 2008

Produced on the occasion of the conference of the International
Peace Resarch Association
(Leuven, 2008) -- Building Sustainable Futures: Enacting Peace and
The animation accessible below is produced as part of an exploration for which
arguments are developed in detail in a series of papers:
The animation was developed from materials describing the IPRA
2008 conference programme on the web. The animation is currently available
in three formats:
A compromise was sought in developing these animations in order to limit their
size for purposes of download. The motion is therefore somewhat jerky at 12
frames/sec. There is no audio.
The animation was produced through use of the Stella
Polyhedron Navigator software application developed by Robert Webb.
Demo versions of the software can be freely downloaded. The relevance of this
application is discussed in detail in Polyhedral
Pattern Language: software facilitation of emergence, representation and
transformation of psycho-social organization (2008).
