Personal Space

  Hardware build, Visualization, 2017  

How much personal space do urban population have every day? Does the amount of personal space I have throughout the day affect my mood?


I recently moved to New York and broke my earphones. Usually, I would say that I have zero need for personal space, but not having no music to distract me, I found myself hypersensitive to people's presence around me.

This project has 03 parts.


First, is building the sensors. I used Arduino, ultrasonic distance sensors, and EEProm to create a hardware to log the amount of distance I have from things throughout the day.


Second, is creating the visualization program. This was done in p5, and documentation of this can be read here & here.


Third, is wearing the hardware and run around the city to get actual data.
