Explore the perils and possibilities of self-exploration through hacking, home brew electronics and hands-on biostatistics.


Is the “quantified self” a new means of empowerment or the first steps towards a dystopian, spreadsheet driven vision of the future?

Patchworks is a research collaboration between the community support group, Signposts, MadLab and Lancaster University exploring the health and communication needs of homeless people through the co-design of prototype tools using cheap, open source technology.

Patchworks is part of Catalyst, a multidisciplinary research project engaging community groups and academics to envision and build next-generation tools to facilitate social change.
