Stalagmemes reflect the structure of online debates on climate change. They all have a different morphology that is described here. This morphology characterizes the debates associated with them: lively, latent, persistent, recurrent, bushy, obsolete, etc.
Each of the nodes of a phylomemy (the small colored squares on the images) corresponds to a topic tackled on Twitter and the web. It has been identified by phylomemetic reconstruction and is characterized by a set of terms (eg. costal flooding, irrigation, seed, monsoon, arid region, grounwater resources). The stalagmemes grow by branch. When the terms that constitute the end of one of them are mentioned on the social network Twitter, a new twig grow little, letting appear a new end that may contain new terms if the debate has moved. Thus, Stalagmemes grow in real time depending on the intensity and diversity of online discussions on different topics of climate change.
Below, for each stalagmemes, you will find all the terms that make up their sap. If you tweet something about climate change mentionning one of them, you will participate in the growth of stalagmemes in the exhibition. Count about 30 min for the digestion of a tweet into stalagmemes sap.
