Stats Against the Odds
Data Visualization / Print / Handmade
It was November 29th when I first met Lydia.
She was in Berlin for work and her flight back to California
was scheduled for December 3rd.
Those 5 days were a bit like a fairytale and at the airport, we decided that we want to make it into something more – despite the over 9000km that were about to come between us.
For our semi-anniversary in June, I hand made a book. Lydia is a scientist and loves data, so I visualised details such as how we met and how many days we spent together.
She also appreciates textures a lot, so I added laser cut linen patches for tactile elements. This way, you can not only view our relationship over time and distance, but also experience it with your fingertips.
Additionally, the book includes maps that chronologically trace the places we visited and experiences we shared.
It measures 21 x 15 cm / 8.2 x 5.9 in (closed) and is composed of 12 pages printed on 300g paperboard.
