Capturing the stories and lived experience of those diagnosed with neurological condition, Functional Neurological Disorder, through art.
Design Informatics students explore ‘data-as-a-material’ with two distinct approaches and design briefs – Designing Ecologies’ and Fashion Informatics – they have created responses which either question more than human and under-represented “voices” in data collection or seek to examine ways in which we could adorn our human selves through worn-data interfaces. Part of the Edinburgh Science Festival 2023.
Circular Economy for the Creative Industries
Wouldn’t it be great if you could source tools, materials, services and spaces in a way that is good for the planet and good for your creative practice?
Design with DataSphere
In collaboration with Edinburgh Science Festival, the Design Informatics students were set a challenge to visualise data based on the themes and topics around the 2022 Edinburgh Science Festival’s DataSphere exhibition.
Every-Body presented the work of pioneering design studio, Universal Everything, to stimulate discussion about how the body is shaped through AI and the city.
Let There Be Dragons

Telling Tales of Engagement
Poetic expressions of smart donations with Oxfam
Three commissioned researchers (Bakita Kasadha, Martin Glynn and Nicky Melville) cut through the corpus of a major research project that took place between 2019 and 2021: the OxChain Smart Donations project. The OxChain project set out to explore how blockchain technologies could be used to reshape value in the context of international development and the work of Oxfam to reach new audiences.
Quantum Drawing Workshop with Paul Thomas
The Quantum Drawing Day workshop was part of the Design Informatics Research Webinar series.
The workshop, designed by Honorary Professor Paul Thomas, draws an analogous relationship with probability and uncertainty prevalent in science where the observer affects what is observed. You can watch the full workshop and see some of the creative drawings here.
Training and re-training autonomous vehicles
Project D-RISK is making self-driving cars by creating the ultimate driving test for autonomous vehicles.
Join us at Inspace to learn more about the project, why its work matters and to tell them your own experiences as a driver, passenger, cyclist or pedestrian; from the sublime to the ridiculous, D-RISK wants to hear your experiences.
CI Labs #19
We were delighted to be streaming the Creative Informatics CI Labs #19 live from Inspace!.
The CI Lab #19 showcased two incredible new creative works from Michael Begg and Eve Mosher, commissioned through our Ocean ARTic partnership with Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland and Blue Action.
Space and Satellites
Artist Residency at EdSciFest ’21
Representing sound, weaving, illustration, dance, animation and more, the artists-in-residence teamed up with scientists to make data ‘visible’ and highlighting changes on earth, from the movement of puffins to environmental changes, through to the impact that the Coronavirus has had on our cities.
Creative interventions in video calling
Artists, academics, hackers, designers and creative technologists developed interventions that make workings of technologies, such as Zoom, legible to wider audiences.

Design with Data
Spring ’21 Student Show
Design with Data is a postgraduate course taught at the University of Edinburgh as part of the Design Informatics Masters programme. Bringing data to life through visual and interactive practices, the series of creative works in this show investigate a range of National Library of Scotland datasets through a myriad of approaches
Sound Exchange is a group exhibition emerging from the Distributed Capabilities research project. The exhibition showcases artefacts created by a collective of eleven craft makers who experimented with sounds as an alternative source of design inspiration.
Universal Matter, as a live, responsive artwork is a way to visually interact with ideas of “otherness”. By placing human and non-human agents on the same footing, there is a chance we can recalibrate our relationship with the things, beings and matter around us.
Space and Satellites
In our first Artist in Residence programme, we invited a group of 5 artists to focus on the theme of space and satellites data. The residencies created a space for exploration and aimed to create genuine collaborations between science and creative practice.
We began as part of the body
Exhibition explored how bodies are imagined, visualised and made audible using bio-medical data. The exhibition was presented with the Centre for Biodmedicine Self & Society, as part of Being Human Festival 2020.
Universal Everything is a collective of digital artists and experience designers who explore the relationship between humans, technology and futures. We bring their work to Inspace to stimulate discussion about how the body is shaped through AI and the city.
