Interdisciplinary research group at FH Potsdam situated between interface design, computer science and the humanities

We are an interdisciplinary research group at Fachhochschule Potsdam situated between interface design, computer science, and the humanities. Our work revolves around information visualization with a particular focus on the challenges and questions arising from social, cultural, and technological transformations. Our mission is to make sense of comprehensive datasets and complex issues by developing creative and critical approaches to visualization. All our research projects are collaborative in nature. We are working with academic and cultural institutions as well as public and private organizations, especially in the contexts of digital humanities, smart cities, and science communication. The lab is a collaboration between the Department of Design and the Institute for Urban Futures. At the junction of design teaching and visualization research, we strive to have an impact in both academia and the world of practice. For the physical and social space of the lab, our ambition is to cultivate a stimulating environment for a transdisciplinary community of designers, developers, and scholars engaging with contemporary issues of societal relevance. We are keen to share our work with the broader public via interactive prototypes, exhibitions and workshops, and with our academic peers through conferences and journals. The research lab is jointly directed by Marian Dörk, research professor for information visualization, and Boris Müller, professor for interaction design. Located in the main building on the FHP campus in Potsdam, the lab is a place where researchers and students with varying backgrounds especially interface design, informatics, and cultural studies are working together. We frequently invite practitioners and researchers to our public lecture series information+visualization to speak about current topics in data visualization.
