Gathering and analyzing data is central to my research and design projects. In 2011 I worked on a number of projects that took large sets of data related to Ireland, where I'm from, and expressed those datasets as sculptures, graphics and stories. I gave a TEDx talk at NYU's Gallatin School about this work.
In the talk, I described the messy and ethically fraught process of working with data - and the rich sense of personal meaning I got from doing this sort of work.
I encouraged people to think about questions and issues that were personally meaningful to them, and then to get their hands dirty with datasets and analysis tools freely available online.
