Using her background in engineering and technology she explores self-tracking and compulsive organization. She creates life's most basic patterns as color coded charts. Steps walked, calories expended, weight, sleep, time-online, gps location, daily mood as color, micro-journal of food ingested are...

    Laurie Frick draws from neuroscience to construct intricately hand-built work and installations that explore the nature of pattern and the mind. Using her background in engineering and technology she explores self-tracking and compulsive organization. She creates life's most basic patterns as color coded charts. Steps walked, calories expended, weight, sleep, time-online, gps location, daily mood as color, micro-journal of food ingested are all part of her daily tracking. She collects personal data using gadgets that point toward a time where complete self-surveillance will be the norm.

    In Frick’s charts made of up cycled paper, wood, cardboard and industrial color samples passively measured personal attributes become floor to ceiling abstractions. Frick envisions these environments as a method to build a patterned vocabulary and grammar for self-tracking. Her wall size patterns anticipate and predict her daily conditions.
