ONE LINE AT A TIME (by Caroline Suttlehan)
For over 5 years now, I’ve been writing one line every day in a journal that now contains over 1,800 daily entries or data points (365 days x 5 years) about the first half of my twenties (ages 21–26).
The journal covers the time period during which I first fell in love, explored a new religion, started therapy and medication, joined the work force, accepted my sexuality, and developed as an artist. It’s a time of transition and identity formation and re-formation.

With a focus on moments rather than minutes, the journal offers me a new way to make meaning of the passing of time.  In addition to the qualitative information offered by the entries, I now have a quantitative dataset after running the entries through a sentiment analysis tool.
With this very comprehensive personal dataset, I asked myself— what would it look like to take our chronos time-telling mechanisms and manipulate them to tell time in the way I seem to be measuring time for myself in my journal.

The resulting series of clock designs, powered my significant events and emotions experiences in my life, offers a new perspective on the notion of time but most significantly is a visualization of a very common human endeavour— the attempt to make meaning of one’s life.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
