Laurie Frick draws from neuroscience to construct intricately hand-built
work and installations that explore the nature of pattern and the mind.
Using her background in engineering and technology she explores self-
tracking and compulsive organization. She creates life’s most basic
patterns as color-coded charts. Steps walked, calories expended,
weight, sleep, time-online, GPS location, daily mood as color, micro-
journal of food ingested are all part of her daily tracking. She collects
personal data using gadgets that point toward a time where complete
self-surveillance will be the norm.
