- To understand dynamic spaces of information and knowl- edge sharing requires unique methodological approaches. The Gravity Spy project uses multiple theory-driven methods involving trace ethnog- raphy, expert and novice interviews, participatory design and content analysis to understand the extent to which non-experts in digital projects can interact with data in more advanced tasks. The theories of boundary objects, genre and provenance inform this work on method development. The project is Gravity Spy, situated on the online citizen science plat- form, Zooniverse. The work of Gravity Spy is to classify glitches (i.e., noise events) in gravitational wave data collected from the Laser In- terferometer Gravitational Observatory (LIGO) to improve the LIGO detectors. As Gravity Spy phases into a new type of workflow and a new interface release, the scientists and researchers aim to gauge how best to support the tasks that will be asked of the volunteers for the project.
