Over the summer at NYU’s ITP Camp for adults, I met the artist Laurie Frick who was making some breathtakingly beautiful sculptures and installations that looked a lot like our QS charts and spreadsheets. I encouraged Laurie to take a look at the data our community was producing.
In Laurie’s words, “I genuinely think there is something inherently comforting in the visual pattern of daily activities both, sleeping and waking. I started using Ben Lipkowitz‘s daily activity charts, and then got hooked on tracking my sleep data as well.” She draws from neuroscience to construct intricately hand-built works and installations to explore the nature of pattern and the mind.
If you’re in LA, make plans to attend the opening reception on Saturday, February 12 from 6-8 at Edward Cella Art + Architecture or check out the work through April 2nd.
Laurie will also join us in May at our first Quantified Self Conference and will have lots of stories to share with us.
