OA Paintings, sociological and geometrical paintings activity of paintings is named OA Paintings. The paintings are geometrical and symbolic. They describe a social sciences concept or an artificial intelligence concept. Sometimes it describes a collective intelligence, sometimes it describes a mind phenomenon which should be evoked by the paintings.

The paintings are associated with electronic music and the inspiration comes from psychedelic concepts that have been theorized and examined under the lights of sciences.

The previous main subjects of OA Paintings were the media tactics we could see on Internet and more generally sociological concept of the birth of Internet around the years 2000-2005.

Political sociology is also interested, sometimes dealing about nation’s building concept that are missing on the France political scenes.

The web site of OA Paintings is

There is also a Facebook page and a Twitter page. Strategic analysis and political communications analysis reports strategic analysis and political communications begin around 2009, working on the image in the press of french ministers and president during the Nicolas Sarkozy mandate. The analysis of in the field of economics, arts, philosophy have been sollicited by a military collaboration. From the political communications and strategic analysis came the decision system project. analysis were used for french economical crisis, for Lybia military intervention and for Syria military intervention between 2009 and 2012.

The effect of political communications could be seen on Internet press articles, on french scientific publications, on library shelves. It could also be seen on hardware technology shelves of Le Havre area and some internet shops.

Today and since 2009 it is important to say that the collaboration was not paid, and we tried to reach DGSI and finally Rouen and Nanterre High court.

It is also important to say that produced analysis that were used during electoral campaign 2012 and that were re-used during electoral campaign 2017.

For political communications and strategic analysis you can contact me at or on social networks at lab is an open source engineering company, in other words this is a laboratory that work on Information technology. The fields of work of are the strategic analysis and the political communications.’s main projects are decision system and Cooperation-iws operating system. These two systems of software are backed by social sciences research which should have been validated by Phd. This is not the case today but this is backed by the education of Olivier Avenel with two master degrees.

  1. is an Internet press archiver and analyser
  2. Cooperation-iws operating system is a Linux Intranet Nomad Server project.

The social sciences research of Cooperation-iws are carried in the fields of medias and political sociology and also in the fields of schizophrenia sociology. It produces two other activities of political communications and strategic analysis.

The activities of political communication and strategic analysis are conducted with the software and produce three applied projects of research in these domains:

  1. The activity of sociological and geometrical paintings which could be seen at
  2. The activity of Bonsaïs farm which could also be seen at
  3. The activity of dj which is in progress and which has a domain: . The activity of Dj have been conducted at desk without public exhibition. Paintings Bonsais Farm

Cooperation-iws knowledge system philosophy


Cooperation-iws knowledge system demo is online since few weeks now (, and we will explain the philosophy and the purpose behind the tools.

Let’s first explain, in relatively brief manner, the theoretical fundations of the knowledge system. We need to say we adapt the work of Jean Louis Lemoigne on general system to produce separate and new components to the original way Jean Louis Lemoigne describe the general system. This was done after noticing the information progress to knowledge and decision: data -> information -> knowledge -> decision.

The structurating purpose of the knowledge system is to facilitate learning in the field of sciences, and especially in the field of social sciences, who are sometimes at the same level of complexity as mathematical studies. This is a structurating purpose because we can see in scientific reviews about learning, that human kind learned to build tools but also that tools and environment interactions make the mind evolution. So when I was interested to grab theoretical fundations during my professional experience in order to be admitted in Phd scholarship, I began to use open source information technology to settle my intellectual thinking and learning. This was around 2006 and today my knowledge system is a memory of my brain’s health and performance but this is also with the whole Cooperation-iws system which relies on open source intranet web server, a repository of my artistic, professional and scientific intellectual work.

As we will certainly produce a Phd thesis on the subject, we have just introduce it shortly and we will now proceed to explain the philosophy of the content of the knowledge system.

First we need to say that the knowledge system is dedicated to intranet personal server. This is not a research briefs publishing system but rather, a tool to facilitate learning in the field of sciences. The Cooperation-iws knowledge system is a demonstration and a snapshot of the real knowledge system which run at home, protected from security and privacy inquisition.

The knowledge system is aimed to live several years or decades, this is why we choose open source technology with large communities, professional class engineering and a complete compliance to web standards such as a LAMP (Linux, Apache, Mysql, Php) server, and CMS system such as WordPress.

On the semantic side I structurate the information so that it match my scientific interests and produce a knowledge aggregation that lead to easy the writing of my research thesis. To sum up I needed to organize and archive my notes for several years of work.
We choose to divide the knowledge system into three separate repositories to avoid having a huge single storage of information, these repositories are:

The best image which describe the knowledge system is that this is a mirror for my brain, to keep it fit and in good health. Buddhist call it ignorance, Psychiatrist call it anosognosia, the aim of the knowledge system is to produce a mind building tool to improve its performance and fight the effects of these “so called” diseases.

If you followed me until here, you surely understood that you can’t leave a snapshot of your brain, of your intellectual faculties during several years, just like that on internet, for everyone to look at it, except maybe if you are an exhibitionist. This is why we introduce later the concept of Cooperation-iws Intranet Nomad Web server in another post when we will succeed to find sponsorship for the projects. For the moment you might still have a look at this promotional papers about the subject:




Welcome on Cooperation-iws blog. This blog will gather some information about epic Cooperation-iws systems adventure.

Cooperation-iws systems are information systems and decision systems built on open source technology. The first components of Cooperation-iws systems have been built in 2008.

Since then, several non public releases were built including nomad operating system, a modified version of Debian Lenny and Debian Squeeze, and the main decision systems based on open source technology, waiting to find a business model for public availability. For Cooperation-iws nomad operating systems promotion, you can have a look at these papers (pdf).

Decision systems worked on real situation and real conditions during past years. Some case studies observed on european and international societies emerged in the field of marketing war, national economy management and, of course, information technology progress and strategy.  For decision systems case studies, you can have a look at these informed research thesis and research papers comments.

As you can see in my CV, I had previous work experience in french defence industry, mainly in logistics call for tender for defence procurement agencies. The idea of the decision systems I have built, came from my consulting work on the Mentor design study in 2007. Mentor was a training system for tactical joint staff ; we worked with a department of CID (Collège interarmée de Défense). But this was only the idea, the prototype I have built is completely different in technology and in strategy from those of the industrial I worked for.

As you probably noticed, Cooperation-iws was born in 2008, but since then there was no real progess in public availability of products. This is mainly because I had no private or governmental fundings, despite working on national IT strategy and even Defence IT strategy that exist only on international foreign countries (USA, China). It seems that french defence industry was from irrational and irresponsible manner in love with US software firms proprietary technology. You can have a look at such kind of problem when you notice the number of french political leaders that work with Microsoft Windows, Twitter, Facebook …

Nevertheless, if you are interested with the Cooperation-iws projects you can contact me with the social networks I am affiliated (see at the top of the page) or you can send me an email at olivier.avenel [at]
