Over the last few years, graphic designer and PSFK conference speaker Nick Felton mapped the annual history of and even the emmiigration of his father’s life. The work caught the attention of Facebook and its widely assumed that he was hired by the tech giant to help design the interface for the Timeline component of their service. Nick – who was a pioneer of the quantified-self movement – seems to still have some spare time and he’s just released a new biennial of his life in 2010/11.
The new report seems to track everything - from the numbers of times he spent in various restaurants to the number of places he spent with a certain Olga.
On the site, Nick points out that Philip K. Dick claimed that “a person’s authentic nature is a series of shifting, variegated planes that establish themselves as he relates to different people; it is created by and appears within the framework of his interpersonal relationships.” He says that The Feltron 2010/2011 Biennial Report explores this notion by overlapping facets of Nicholas’ behavior to visualize how his personality varies based on location and company.
The printed version for the report retails for $25.
