I have meticulously recorded my daily actions for a total of 40 days. Everything I have done has been organized into 6 categories and brought to life through color and form. Patterns and contrast emerge through visualization, providing permanence to previously transient data and facilitating a new level of self-awareness.
The physical presence of these forms symbolizes the knowledge gained by collecting and analyzing the data. Data are abstract; they have no physical presence and no inherent structure, but our brains evolved to understand the real world, not abstract concepts. By making data tangible, it changes the way we understand and interact with it, augmenting our minds’ ability to grasp digital and mathematical abstractions.
