Quantify me, a showing of works by artist Laurie Frick, opens at Women and their Work on January 14. Frick has used her background in science and engineering to create a series of works that visually depict her own patterns of sleep, exercise, mood, and other quantifiable patterns in her life.
Frick was inspired by her own tendencies to measure her weight, amount of sleep, and other quantifiable patterns as well as her observations of the growing trend of connected people to measure and report facts about themselves on a daily basis. In a society where real-time updating of foods eaten and locations visited, is it a stretch to think that our environments will come to be determined and changed based on such measurements? Frick thinks not, and has created an artspace that reflects that possible future.
