At the London School of Economics Alison Powell has been working on the Data Walking project ( During data walks people are invited to observe, discuss and record connections between, data, processes of datafication and the city. They make notes of tensions, surprises and counterintuitive findings. The walk is used as a way to surface new understanding of data and create an open engagement with data.

This workshop is explores data walks for teaching and research at the department of Media and Culture Studies. It considers how new ‘scenographic strategies’ might provoke the insights, challenges and interventions made possible by such walks.
