Datacatcher is part of a five year project funded by the European Research Council conducted by a group of researchers based in the Interaction Research Studio at Goldsmiths, University of London.
Our team in the Interaction Research Studio have backgrounds in Design, Social Sciences, Arts and Technology. We’ve been a studio since 1995 and are based in the Design Department at Goldsmiths. We do research through design in the area of computational devices for everyday life. That is, we make things and let people try them, not to develop commercial products, but to learn both about people and new possibilities for technologies.
We have given 130 datacatchers to people located in and around Greater London. Participants of this research will be living with the datacatchers for over two months and we will learn about their experience in a variety of ways: through short interviews with filmmakers, ethnographies and through other designed forms of engagement.
The datacatcher team, past and present, includes: Robin Beitra, Kirsten Boehner, Andy Boucher, John Bowers, David Cameron, Richard Cook, Jen Estwick, Matthew Plummer-Fernandez, Bill Gaver (PI), Mark Hauenstein, Robin Hunter, Nadine Jarvis, Tobie Kerridge, Lee Murray, Liliana Ovalle, Sarah Pennington, James Pike, Nicolas Villar, Alex Wilkie and Justin Wilson.
