Bridge One Project Concept

Data:

During the first two weeks of school, I had been collecting my electronic usage data for nine days. I collected both my computer usage and phone usage. I recored the time I spend on my computer with my watch and I obtained my app usage time on my phone through Settings -> Battery -> Last 24 Hours. The only problem with the data was that my phone only gave me the data in minutes, meanwhile I had my computer usage data in hours/minutes/seconds, so I converted all my data into seconds on Google spreadsheet and organized them into a JSON file indexed by device type and day.

Inspirations:

Perception, Data Collection and Memory – Ishac Bertran

 

 

 

 

 

Concept:

While I was organizing my data into a JSON file, I realized that I had been using some apps on a daily basis and with similar time durations. I was inspired by Ishac Bertran’s Slow Game (the video above), which I will be creating a tetris game control by the daily usage time of my often used iphone apps. Each iphone app will represent a function to control the tetris game, and the duration that I spend on the app will determine the movements of the tetris blocks.
