Book of Happiness
A notebook, inside which a person’s happy memories are represented and analyzed using Statistical Regression Analysis and Parametric Design.
We interviewed a close friend of ours who has overcome more than a decade of struggle against depression. She lies down on a couch, and recalls 30 most difficult days during her journey. For each day she remembers, she rates her "sense of loss" and "level of internal struggle" on a scale of 1 to 10. We processed the data through a parametric design algorithm, generated 30 diagrams, laser cut into 30 individual pages, and manually bind them into a physical book.
With this project, we would like to explore the possibility of creating a new form of visualization that's both informative, and humane. We hope it could serve as a faithful account of a beautiful journey that's cherished by both the owner and the audience of this book.
