Past nor Present
Transparency and measurability have been evolved to relevant mechanisms of control in today's society. On this website, shown as an installation, personalised data of 16 years have been reduced to a formal structure. Each dot (Zeitpunkt) represents a day. One week is shown in the lapse of a heartbeat. Color and gradient refer to the succession of the years. Size and loudness are controlled by the intensity of the data. A specially designed software captures the data, saves it into a database and generates the formal representation. Each day new data is added.
