The Office for Creative Research (OCR) is a hybrid research group, working at the intersection of technology, culture and education. The OCR strives to foster data literacy and to create work that brings data visualization off the screen and into public spaces, as sculptures, interactive installations, and performances. Currently, we're developing a one-click open platform for field researchers and explorers, empowering individuals to reverse engineer ad targeting, creating a space for St. Louis residents to examine the lived geographies of their city, instrumenting a glacier, and examining the reach of one of the world's largest social networks. Previously, our partners have included The Museum of Modern Art, National Geographic, Scientific American, and the 9/11 Memorial.
