Have you ever wondered how much data is actually known about you? What pictures you posted, what might be recorded, captured, documented, or stashed in a database somewhere about you? I have thought about a future where personal data could become meaningful. Maybe all this vaguely unpleasant surveillance data gathered about us could turn into a surprisingly insightful view of ourselves and delivered in ways that will be irresistible, as art. This is a laser cut drawing of my walking location data captured from the 51st week of the year.
