Our device is a simple but playful drawing tool that visualizes the occupation in a space during the course of a day. As the sensor is triggered, the pen drops, causing lines to form across the paper disc. The arm of the device moves outward every hour, and the length and density of the lines begin to reveal the duration and frequency of each visit. Each disc produced becomes a beautiful visual artifact- a physical recording- of the history of both how and when the space was used, which in turn can reveal a potentially unseen character of the room.
Made during Physical Computing course at CIID 13 with Massimo Banzi and Dario Buzzini.
