These Amazing Drawings Visualize the Data Patterns of Everyday Life
Everyday life is full of patterns, and now, two artists have managed to visualize those patterns with all the mathematical precision of data visualization, while still taking the emotional component into account. 

After meeting at a conference, information designers Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec, who live in New York City and London, respectively, started a correspondence in which they drew by hand visual representations of the patterns in everyday life, from the number of times they glanced at the clock to how often they made physical contact with another person. The results are both visually striking and fascinating, as they essentially provide a detailed snapshot of each week of their lives, no matter how small the scope may be.

They each send a postcard every week, with a drawing and a detailed key of the meaning of all the symbols. They say they will be uploading new pictures periodically for the next year, but we would be happy if it went on forever.
