TODAY is a piece of generative design for mobile phones.
It's an application that visualizes personal mobile communication. It sits on the periphery of the machine, monitoring our connectivity through the number and type of calls we receive, subtly displaying them back to us, in the form of a generative graphic. Here, the visual result is a figurative and seemingly abstract picture -- the story of your day. Some days will be really colorful and wired, others quieter and more reflective, either way the resulting visuals will always be personal, unrepeatable and unique.
What lies at TODAY's core was the idea of using personal data as the basis for an aesthetic system, while providing individuals with a visual diary of their communication patterns.
It's an intimate piece that "lives" in your pocket.
It's freely distributed for Symbian phones at http://today.cada1.net
