Research overview

Datadrifts:A jouney through the meaning of data.

My research examines claims about dominant open data practices and products (in particular hackathons and apps) regarding their potential to solve issues related to environmental change, such as flooding. My work develops a 'pattern language'  that identifies key issues with the dominant approaches and suggests alternatives that enable a greater input from alternative groups and forms of knowledge. One alternative practice developed is the 'data drift', where participants visit a rural location and encouraged to consider, collect and map both digital and analogue sources of data.
