ONE YEAR IN MY LIFE - ANYWHERE, 2011
Designer Merel Brouns has created a handmade timeline infographic of her 2011 year:
After one and a half years of drawing my days, I wanted to take it a step further. I realized it’s not possible to capture a whole day in just one drawing, unless you’re a really amazing illustrator that is…
That’s when I started to think about a timeline in which I could register every hour of the day. I started on the first of January 2011 and I was committed to continue this project until December 31st 2011. And so I did.
The people I meet, the hours I work, the hours I sleep and the moments I’m in transit are all portrayed by pieces of colored tape. The days are white, the nights are grey and every centimetre is one hour. The view from the topside of this accordeon-like book shows the days getting shorter and longer with the seasons. When folded, this expandable book forms a block, but in its extended condition it’s about 300 ft long.
