“In 2003 I began a year-long durational project called the Daily Quantification Records. Every day I collected information and recorded measurements about my day-to-day life, such as: my weight, the number of steps I took, the number of swear words I uttered and the number of people I spoke to. I termed this kind of information ‘the data of everyday life‘ and became fascinated in its potential uses and the possibility of transforming it into something out-of-the-ordinary, given a little imagination.”
