The drawn networks of Torgeir Husevaag

A selection of some drawn networks of various types by Norwegian artist Torgeir Husevaag.

Network of People (image above) is a rendering of people encountered by the artists during a week.

During a week in November 1996, I took notes about all forms of contact I had with other people (name, time, place, duration etc). This was an attempt to investigate and visualise to what extent a persons private history is a part of his present life and personal network. The people I met in the research-week became the “1st generation informers”. They are represented with a name in an red oval in the drawing. Most of these 104 encounters of the “present” could refer to other associates of mine. These relations (named by the 1st gen. Informers), were added to the drawing (orange oval) according to a cronology. I stopped the investigation there, although The 2nd generation informers could have refered to a third one, etc…

Poker-drawings I and II (image above and below).

These pen and ink drawings were transcriptions of poker-tournaments played online, with myself as a participant. Each players actions is shown as a series of specific symbols, while the players involved in each hand is connected with lines. The two series employ the same set of symbols, but arrange them differently.

Antimatter (image above).

The map is a network of two hundred Norwegian companies/ organizations core values. I have replaced all the words representing the values with antonyms (the opposite of synonyms).
