    A hunt for the borders between the informative and artistic in data visualisation. A mixture of the scientific and instictive. How can we turn (generally dull) graphics into something visually attractive?
     
    In the project 100.data.days. I spent a hundred days of my life working on data visualisation. During this period I gathered personal data on daily basis. Every day I've made a data visualisation about my data. So a dairy came about with a hundred different data visualisations, which each tell their own story about my life. The information and artistic value of eacht visualisation were then analysed.
     
    The combination of these two extremes continues to fascinate me. In the current information culture the visualisation of data is increasingly important as it expands in quantity: without artistic transformation the communicative value of data is lost in the mass.
     
    The hundredth and last data visualisation is a poster. All 99 previous data visualisations are visualised on an x-axis (informative value) and a y-axis (artistic). The size of the circles indicates how long I’ve worked on the respective visualisation. Folded, this last data visualisation is the cover of the books.
     
     
    Because I wanted to do this project for 100 days in a row, I had no rest day. Every day I visualized data and I collected data for the next day. Besides of that, I had to think about which data I was going to collect the next day.
    Yes, it was quite heavy.
     
    This project gave me a lot of creative satisfaction. But beside of that I’ve learned much about myself. I was shocked by the number of calories in hot chocolate and the large quantity of water I consumed when I was showering.
    People looked really weird to me when I was counting all the steps that I took or when I noted the time when locked the car. I really discourage anyone to do a project like this for 100 days. But you will learn a lot about yourself if you will do a project like this for a week (or two).
     
    I collected the data, made the visualisations, did the editorial design, bounded these books and I've made these pictures.
     
    100.data.days. is a part of my masterthesis.
