When culture researchers get their hands dirty with code – first reflections from an interdisciplinary study of cultural events
Medialab's research project on culture cycles in Katowice, delivered as part of the Shared Circuits: Creative Momentum project, is now in its final stages. However, before the Medialab team and the invited experts present the full results of the study during the Data (for) Culture, the project’s manager Karol Piekarski comments on the activities already completed in an interview with Łukasz Mirocha.

Data » information » knowledge: Medialab designers discuss the role of visualisation in the research process
In addition to data acquisition and analysis, the subsequent step of data visualisation is a central task that the Medialab team faces as part of the study of the culture cycles in Katowice under the Shared Cities project. As one of our previous postings has already covered the challenges facing our coders, this time we talk to Medialab designers. Paulina Urbańska and Waldek Węgrzyn work on the visual side of the project on a daily basis, while constantly improving our research methodologies and internal team communication.

Medialab coders talk about the challenges of data acquisition and analysis
Successful data analysis in cultural projects would not be possible without the work of a team of coders who work hand in hand with designers and researchers to create the best tools and methods of working with data. We asked our experts – Dawid Górny and Marcin Chojnacki – to talk about their daily work and the challenges they face during each stage of the project.

Studio NAND: There is nothing worse than a visualisation that tries to convey too much information at once
On January 9–10, Medialab once again had the pleasure of hosting Steffen Fiedler and Stephan Thiel of Berlin’s design studio NAND, who gave an open lecture, and conducted a two-day workshop for representatives of institutions working jointly on the Shared Cities project. In an interview given to Medialab, the data visualisation experts talked about their work, best visualisation practices and the future of the industry.
