8 Years of Dating History

This chart is read left to right, up to down. Each row represents a year in my life (starting at age 15), and is made up of 365 columns representing days.

Right Hand

Artist Alberto Frigo took a picture of every object he used with his right hand for the past 11 years.

The second project graph EA NHL 12 hockey stats such as the time on ice, number of slap shots taken, and the points scored thought the game. Thirdly, Sam created a Calgary Transit commute log to keep track of where and when transit travel occurred.

Each new visualization was then morphed together to create a final interface to compare each data set side-by-side.
