Fibers is a lovely data visualization software that transforms Nike Fuelband data into artworks. The project was developed by data visualization artist Marcin Ignac in collaboration with Nike to celebrate the “We Own The Night — Nike Women’s 10k run.”
A fiber represents a days worth of activity with color and thickness indicating activity levels and intensity. The length of the fibers indicates total sum of activity in comparison to previous days.
7 days worth of data is translated into dynamic, abstracts prints.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if the software was available to us all so we can make prints of our own daily movement?
