I was impressed by the idea use photo to record every object his right hand has touched for the last 11 years in daily life. an average of 76 photos daily. Totally collection of 300,000 images. Frigo said that “I am excited that there might be some hidden pattern in all of this code I am generating,”(Frigo, 2015). I think this is a fantastic project that record the thing around life and from what he got to find the DNA code of his life. it was a really meaningful thing for himself. so I think in my project I need find more meanings for self tracking.
