I’ve been programming hard to shape the pages that will represent my life in the calendar. I’ve used Marcos’ statistics to make a nice backdrop for my pages using the average of stress, energy, mood and inner peace values. Layered on top of that are the distinguishing values for the above parameters. I’ve also already incorporated the diary, haiku’s and photographs. It might take some tweaking still but the basics are there. See for yourself:
And a day with less data:
So the horizontal lines is the energy, diagonal is stress, the V or upside down is the mood and the white circles represent inner peace. All vary in colour and repetition depending on the value. I do love the different patterns that are drawn. Quite surprising.
Nice first drawing on rice paper. The kind of paper used is very important for the result. I must see if I can find a narrow roll of rice paper. Or just use toilet paper?
My manually operated drawing machine build with a cardboard box.
Sketch for my ‘drawing breath machine’. A box with 2 sticks through it, one with a crank on one side. They will support the rolls of paper. The brush will be suspended from the top of the box.
Breathing for 3 minutes (until ink was finished). While in- or exhaling I moved the brush. When not breathing it remained motionless on the paper.
This blog is about the design and creation is of a wearable that measures, displays and shares real-time air quality data. This wearable is developed during the wearables group at the digital lab in Den Bosch. This blog monitors the progress of this process.
