My talk from SXSW Interactive 2014
What happens when you take a photo of every fragment of your life?
All those micro moments that are recorded and analysed. Has your visual existence been enhanced? What would you learn from your signature photographic aesthetic?
This talk will explore the notion that an 'unexamined (visual) life is not worth living'.
My talk will explore the implications of what mainstream visual life logging means for individuals, culture and photography.
The talk will use data from my trial of a leading visual life logging wearable camera.
I will mix quantified self analytics with ‘qualified self’ data to interpret my visual record and its signature aesthetic.
I will contrast the culture of visual life logging with the rituals of analogue photographic albums to gain a better understanding of how we are changing the way we preserve and narrate memories and share experiences across the social graph.
