The Bullfrogs and physical charts are two outcomes of a yearlong project engagement with a community on Tenison Road in Cambridge, U.K. The engagement sought to better comprehend how the community understands data and to experiment with ways of enriching and expanding how they might use their own data. The Bullfrogs are devices built for people's homes in the community to enable local polling and voting. The physical charts have been designed to display local data and draw people in to seeing and using relevant data in different ways.
