Stef Lewandowski – Data Necklace
Data. It’s all around us. Much of what we do on a daily basis leaves digital records of our activity behind us.
It turns out that there are tiny, hidden stories in the data that we create just by being ourselves, and we can turn those stories into beautiful things.
The Data Necklace is a wearable visualisation of a person’s Twitter feed over time, that can serve as a permanent reminder of how often they use a particular word.
