Conference Preview: Tracking Over Time

April 25, 2014

We’re fascinated by self-tracking projects that extend over long periods of time, and at the upcoming QS Europe conference we’re going to hear from two artists who have been making work out of novel personal data extending back for years. Since 2004, Alberto Frigo has taken a photograph of every object he holds in his dominant hand, as part of a 36-year tracking project that includes collecting many other types of evidence and observations.

Joining Alberto in our Sunday morning  plenary session will be the artist Danielle Roberts, whose Reversed Calendar goes back in time to 2005 and contains eight years of mood and stress data, along with photos, micro diary entries, and poetry.

We hope you’ll join us in Amsterdam for the QS Europe Conference on May 10 and 11 to meet Danielle, Alberto, and other self-trackers and tool makers coming to share their work.
