This poster is a data visualization of my prolific list making habit. Over the course of two weeks, I documented the day of the week, the time of day, and specified a category for each item on my lists. On this data poster the top half represents week one and the bottom half represents week two. Running along the vertical sides of is the time of day, so you could see the time of day each list was written, indicated by the rotation of the line. The eight categories ranging from work to school to just life were each assigned a color; each task was color-coded to indicate what type of task it was. By displaying the data in this way, I was hoping to find a pattern in my listmaking. I think I found one: that Mondays I write the most tasks, which corresponds with my need to write lists when I am stressed. I chose to include the original text of my lists to share the depth of each task and make the data visualization more personal and understandable.
I then translated this infographic into an interactive tablet interface, which includes animation.
