A number of students from The School of Engineering are taking place in DATA-X.
DATA-X is a University of Edinburgh IS Innovation Fund initiative supported by the Data Lab and brings together PhD researchers from the arts and sciences to develop collaborative ‘installations’ which will explore data re-use and disciplinary boundaries for a lay audience. 'Installations' will take the form of digital sculptures, simulations, performances, soundscapes, interactive exhibits, 3D structures, machinery, visualisations.
To accompany the exhibition a symposium will be held on 1 December 2016 in the Main Lecture Theatre, Edinburgh College of Art introduced by Professor Chris Speed (Chair of Design Informatics, University of Edinburgh). PhD researchers will formally present their ‘installations’ alongside guest speakers.
