Internet Activity Timelines
MA Graphic Design work - Phase 1
I wanted to compare the activity of web surfing to other pastimes. I observed the web surfing process of myself and others, recording which sites were accessed and the length of time spent on each site for one hour. I then converted this information into visual timelines.
Recreational internet surfing
Internet surfing using StumbleUpon
Realising the timelines did not record the process of opening and closing browser tabs, I recorded and timelined a new process.
I then recorded myself consuming various types of reading material and created timelines indicating the amount of time spent on each page.
