Data Craft


The project “Life in Clay” explores turning data about my life and the lives of my loved ones into functional pottery. My goal in this project wass to give our elusive personal data a physical presence by creating objects that can be touched, loved and used every day. The pattern of each handcrafted artifact represents a precious memory, experience or relationship that I want to remember or remind others of. The data pots create opportunities for the stories hidden in my data to be serendipitously reencountered, shared over dinner with friends or silently reflected upon with a cup of coffee on the couch.
