Reading Imaginaries

Reading Imaginaries is an internet archive of selected research and development notes.

The real beauty of is it assumes our window on the world is neither fully open nor fully closed, but ajar. This assumption admits a reconfiguration of data within a non-hierarchical grouping, thus improving the possibilities for variety and serendipity in data collection and use. The four main classes of data identified are:

  1. Independently verifiable data (i.e. reproducible results, brute facts). E.g. location and environmental features
  2. Sense-data (i.e. subjective reports). E.g. mood or atmosphere
  3. Metaphor (i.e. aesthetic judgements). E.g. rich descriptions and resemblance
  4. Narrative (i.e. stories and memories). E.g. geobiographies and folk tales
