During research for my MA project, I read this interview with one of my favourites: Nicolas Felton. He mentioned the FitBit as a tool to measure distance walked, steps taken, stairs climbed and so on. After a brief research in activity monitors, I ordered FitBit One for myself. Hopefully my next year’s report will be a little less digital, thanks to constant tracking and convenient, well-developed syncing process of the FitBit One.
This discovery of activity monitors actually made me look at iPhone 5s again, since it has the same function of activity tracking thanks to new M7 chip. Even though it improved the battery drain by the sensors over the other iPhones, I couldn’t find any conclusive review about M7 performance as an activity monitor, perhaps iphone 6?
Ever since I moved my apartment, I always wanted to create perfect creative atmosphere, not just for design, but to think, to discuss and evaluate. These are panoramas I took of my desk and mainly, wall behind it.
I put up pieces from my own work and things I found interesting at the time. I think it helps to think better, to catch on details while starring on the screen. It is sometimes useful to be reminded of what’s been done or associations with the piece on the wall, how I used to think and what I used to be like. Over the years, the wall grew busier but not as good as I imagined it to be - I guess I lost that my vision during my years doing BA.
After I graduated, I took it all down, as a gesture of starting fresh, whether it is a new job or any other new stage in my life.
It’s 2013 now, it is been more than a year since I took it all down, and my wall is still empty to this day. I guess in the end I lost my motivation the way things turned out. Since I’m starting 2nd part of my MA in a couple of weeks’ time, I want yet again make this wall source of inspiration.
