i-DAT is a Research and Design Collective playfully experimenting with data. We co-create and share technological prototypes and practices, that push and challenge the boundaries of digital arts and creative media practice. Our focus is on making ‘data’ tangible, playable and readily available as a material, to generate new meaning and inform participation, audience engagement and innovation in the arts. i-DAT looks after the Immersive Vision Theatre, a ‘shared virtual reality’ Fulldome immersive media environment for data visualisation and simulation.
