Productivity Sticks

Productivity Sticks are a 3D representation of data I collected for 22 days. I used a combination of software and detailed notes to draw graphs which documented my productivity. I then began to convert these 2D graphs into 3D graphs. For this task I learnt how to turn wood on a lathe. The sticks get wider for more productive hours and are narrow for unproductive time. The productive time I was recording soon became the productive task of making the sticks themselves. I ended the project at the point when I became efficient enough to catch up with myself and was turning the 3D stick documenting that very day; I stopped turning when I reached the moment of ‘now’.
