A colourful existence, lead by the significance of numbers. (2008)

A colourful existence, lead by the significance of numbers.

This piece is a new venture for myself and my first attempt at making a website. While studying my Degree in Drawing I've constantly been pre-occupied with the self portrait. This website is a conceptual piece that pays significance to how lives are lead by numbers. I've been documenting the significant and personal digits in my day to day life as well as the overlooked and insignificant, yet ever present numbers (these have included calories, time, money, bus numbers, length of conversations, phone numbers, receipt numbers, barcodes, IP addresses, weight, the number of birds in the sky at a point in time...)

A colourful existence, lead by the significance of numbers.

This piece is a new venture for myself and my first attempt at making a website. While studying my Degree in Drawing I've constantly been pre-occupied with the self portrait. This website is a conceptual piece that pays significance to how lives are lead by numbers. I've been documenting the significant and personal digits in my day to day life as well as the overlooked and insignificant, yet ever present numbers (these have included calories, time, money, bus numbers, length of conversations, phone numbers, receipt numbers, barcodes, IP addresses, weight, the number of birds in the sky at a point in time...)

My documentation is given significance through colour. I have transferred my raw data into 6 digit hexadecimal colour codes. Once following the link from the data sheets the animation appears. The animations are each unique, presenting my existence in a 500x500 pixel window (something which is apparently lively and energetic) . I intended the whole process of a living website to appear monotonous and express aspects of a scheduled routine. I like to think the viewer can presume and interprit assumptions of myself from the conceptual database rather than a final image or classic portrait.
