This is a story about living-with-multimodal-data as a process of diffractive analysis (MacLure, 2013). I discuss a process of analysis where data did not stop, stable and steady once it has been collected, where data waited calmly for the analysis to be done. Rather, this is an exploration of how data-lived-with-me as a human-researcher, how data travelled with me and, together, the data and I danced to co-create something intelligible. Here the challenges and possibilities of embracing a relationship of data-and-researcher are explored and how this sense-making analysis process has occurred.
