ABOUT...................................

Making some sort of ‘public facing’ space/site for some of the stuff (images, thoughts, references, ideas, links etc.) related to my PhD research has been on my to-do list for a while and have finally pulled my finger out...

 

To give a little bit of background: I’m a designer researching police use of body-worn video cameras (BWCs). I've got another website with some past projects, its thomas.marrriott.co.uk I’m interested in how design (methods/processes/practices) can be used to understand and shed light on the technology. More broadly, I’m also interested in the relationship between design, crime and crime control– hence the name [1] – so you can expect a range of things to be posted on here but generally related to policing, crime, surveillance, technology and design.

 

I intend this site to function a bit like a journal and will try to update regularly (perhaps weekly). If you're interested in anything on here feel free to drop me an email or get me on Twitter
