Self Mapping

Visualise yourself, what would you display to an audience? how intimate would you make it? Well even though he has been doing them from 2005 I have just discovered them by Nicholas Feltron. With very minimal styles but nice clean, clear, infographics and bold numbers encased in this swiss style grid system to keep some structure and rigidity to his diverse information of his life.

I am curious how he records all this data to be absolutely accurate, it must be some focsed, disciplined time keeping and number crunching.

Why? When quizzed, Felton’s admits that ‘it satisfies a real curiosity that I have about my habits. Why is it a popular document? If there are numer ous people out there who think it is fascinating and don’t even know me… imagine how fascinating I find it’. At first your reaction is ‘Oh please….’ but soon you are scouring the pages to see which was the most visited restaurant, his most-drunk beer: a sort of typographic Truman Show, authored by Truman himself.

It is intersting how the CR blog author describes it as a sort of typographic Truman Show.

there are previous versions there.

About Me

Love, making, creating, inventing. I started on blogger in 2008'ish, moved to Wordpress, but servers, and migrating etc... so back to here. I tag the posts as there will be lego creations, arduino creations, food creations, design creations... probably gardening creations when I get back to it. There's not so much posting about what I find interesting on the web anymore, rarely have the time. These will be posted to pinterest if you like to keep a track: Enjoy!
