The Jean Golding Institute supports projects that explore how data is conceptualised and how people design ways to imagine, see, feel, taste, understand and experience information by transforming data into knowledge.
We believe that data visualisation, used correctly, can transform how we connect with, and use, research. Over the past few years we have collaborated with partners across the city of Bristol, including We the Curious and Bristol VR Lab, to bring data-driven research to new audiences in transformative ways.
