ANALOG PRINTER <:drops_emoji:> 

This project tries to explore the “in-between” space, ditching the current way of knowing yourself through digital data logging methods and explore the possibility of having a more fluid and organic decision-making experience.

Every day during our online wanderings we are exposed to a multitude of views that are constantly shaping us. In order to make these computational evolutions more tangible and our actions more visible, understanding ourselves through an anlogue data printer could be useful. The ritual of creating a physical mark out of a digital act can put us back in the driver's seat of our digital habits.

The transparent nature of the printer constantly allows the user to see the history from previous days.
