Artist Laurie Frick changed her attitude about sleep by turning her and her’s husband’s sleep data into art, according to The Huffington Post.
We track a lot of data about ourselves. Steps walked, stairs climbed, heart rate and, if you wear an Apple watch, skin temperature.
People don’t know what to do with it, artist Laurie Frick told The Huffington Post. Some people get creeped out by all the data. Some people find it uncomfortable. Yet, according to Frick, “it’s the secret about who we are.”
“I think in the future we’re going to consume our data as art,” she said. “I think it’s going to be irresistible.”
Frick imagines a future in which that art is all around them. “It would be a feedback loop where you use art to talk to yourself about how you’re sleeping and all these other things that you measure about you,” she said. That thinking is part of what led Frick to create her series of drawings that reimagine her and her husband’s own sleep data.
