Emotional Tactile Map

An emotional map based on the Inuit floating maps of territorial fishing grounds of coastal Greenland. This map depicts my weekly emotional state during the first year of my MFA at Edinburgh College of Art from September 2009 to July 2010. On one side of the map Fear is measured against Elation. On the other side Suprise is measured against Anticipation. – Kate McLean

Every Day Of My Life

Every Day of My Life is a visualization of my computer usage statistics from the last 2.5 years. Each line represents one day and each colorful block is the most foreground app running at the given moment. Black areas are periods when my computer is not turned on. Seeping patterns (or lack of them) and time of holidays and travel (longer gaps) can be therefore easily identified. – Marcin Ignac

The Examined Life

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. – Alex Getty

Loci

Each loci is a unique 3D printed sculpture bespoke to someone’s flights spurring recollection, reflection and conversation about their travels. Each loci comes with a card highlighting on a map all the airports flown to. The sculpture can be placed on this card to help visualize their travels. Additional information is displayed on the card, such as the title chosen by the user, the total distance travelled, the number of airports visited, and the number of flights taken. The software generates a file suitable for 3D printing, so that the user can print it. – Andrew Spitz

Crystalized

The Crystallized app by Softlab takes your social relationships and converts them into a tessellated geode type form with a crystaline internal structure. Each external point on the geode represents a friend with the distance from the center defined by the number of mutual friends while the internal structure is defined by the interaction between the two of you. So your ex-girlfriend may be represented by a giant spike on the outside with small crystals inside while your father may be a relatively flat area with big internal spikes. You can then 3D print out your geode to hold your social network in your hands. – Shapeways

Clickflash

Ever since photographer Noah Kalina began his Everyday portrait project 11 years ago (I had no idea he was still actively photographing himself, talk about commitment) there have been hundreds of inspired photogs snapping daily self-portraits. Flickr user clickflashwhir is one of these people, taking hundreds of portraits over the past several yearsTiemen Rapati downloaded 500 of her photos and created this beautiful composite image by finding an average RGB value for each pixel and dividing it by the total number of portraits. – Colossal

Everyday

Ever since October 23rd, 2011 I've taken a photo of myself (almost) everyday. In addition to the time-lapse video that I update yearly, I take the photographs and cut each day into a little strip to make collages. The leftmost strip is January 1st and and the rightmost strip is December 31st. – Dylan Mason
