Every Morsel of Food Documented for Two Years

Saturday 10.01.2011 , Posted by

Lauren Manning documented her life for two years, collected all the data of every piece of food that touched her lips. As a designer you could represent this data in so many different ways; Manning choose to show the data in 40 different infographs. Here we have choosen 11 of our favorites from her series. She says: “Using a data set created from two years of meticulous life documenting, I visualized one point of data – food consumed – over forty ways. Exploring various methods, techniques, styles, degrees of complexity, degrees of additional context and many other elements, a true “apples to apples” comparison has emerged.” Tasty.
