Despite the increased availability of low cost sensors, most of the produced data is 'black box' in nature: users of-ten do not know how to access or interpret data. We propose a 'human-data design' approach in which end-users are given tools to create, share, and use data through tangible and phys-ical visualizations.

We re-port on the design and implementation of Physikit, and pre-sent a two-week field study which showed that participants got an increased sense of the meaning of data, embellished and appropriated the basic visualizations to make them blend into their homes, and used the visualizations as a probe for community engagement and social behavior.",
