Time Visualization

I collected four types of data about myself in a week; the sites I have visited, the people I have talked to, the photos I have taken, and the time spent on my laptop. The four types of data were tracked continuously; from Saturday to Thursday, 144 hours in total. I paid particular attention to recording them and tried to keep them as real as possible. Finally, I focused on the time spent on my laptop and generated several schemes for it.

Stitching

I like to make clothes for my dolls since I was a child. When I grow up, I have tried other kinds of stitching, like felt stitching, cross-stitching, and sewing. The bunny is made of towels and filled with cotton. Her clothes can be taken off.

Play with Buttons

It is how I taught myself JavaScript in the beginning. I tried to make fifty buttons with different functions. Learning by doing is the best way for me to learn something new.

Model Making

I moved to San Francisco in the summer of 2017. I was looking forward to the next three years living here. To memorize the turning point in my life, I build a model of my new home with a scale of 1:12. The materials included foam core, wood, clay, clothes, tissues, and pigments.

Mapping My Day

Three mes are id, ego, and super-ego. The concept was from Freud's structural model of the psyche. Id only follows the pleasure principle. Super-ego plays the critical and moralizing role. Ego is a compromise between id and ego. This map shows my daily activities, including studying, social, entertainment, shopping, and dining.

Moments of Cheers

In China, we usually “干杯” when people are having meals together. It’s like the moment when people say “Cheers” in western countries. I like the moment of “Cheers” because it makes me happy. So, I decided to capture the moments. I have been doing this for 11 years.

My Cake Ritual

I buy a cake on each holiday or special day. This is my way to celebrate my wonderful life.
