I believe self-tracking without any purpose can be boring like Alberto Frigo. I really can’t understand why recorded his normal life for decades now. Modern people are pleased to share their lives with others. But how much of these are real? However, on another hand, after observing a man repeat doing something for 36 years, designers or psychologist could tell every detailed experience like in a different situation to improve the future product.

Reference Project 2: Nicholas Felton – FELTRON



PhotoViz, Nicholas Felton


When we are talking about art, perspective is the most important thing. I knew Nicholas Felton because of his book PhotoViz collecting collage photography work.But after now, I only realize he is a great visual graphic designer.


Editorial, Nicholas Felton

His work explains his life with a nice graphic layout. I think it’s like a diary to keep every detail but in an organized way, which might be used in my following study. Not just being in love with a project but continuing as a habit to improve my design.
