Living Under Your Own Microscope

Living Under Your Own Microscope

It’s about that time when most people carve a minute or two out of their busy schedules to think about the year that was – to recount, reflect, and learn. For the last three, Nicholas Felton has been taking the exercise several steps further with his Feltron Annual Report: a statistical analysis of the things he did, saw, consumed, and performed over the preceding year, compiled into one visually stunning anthology. Felton, a NY-based graphic designer, has been recording nearly every aspect of his daily life to uncover patterns in his behavior and share them in a telling and compelling way. Everything from romantic encounters and beers consumed to streets traversed and lost billiards games are recorded in his 2007 edition in the form of colorful maps, lists, and charts. The result is pretty remarkable: a snapshot of a total stranger’s very personal life experiences – as fascinatingly detailed as it is impersonal.
