Laurie Frick

With her data project, Laurie Frick wants to move away from the basic algorithms and patterned ways of collecting data. Frick wants to have a more personalized approach, so that one day when you look at someones personal data, its not just data, but a “glimpse into their personality”. I took a look at another one of her projects called Stress Inventory. This is an exact example of collecting data, but in the most personal way possible. In this daily chart there are a number of different color dots that indicate different indicators of stress, depending on how much you encountered that day is how many you would stack on for that day. This design is not only really aesthetically pleasing, but is an exact embodiment of collecting data, without the algorithms and actually being able to see someones personality come through.
