a b o u t  t h e  w o r k: 

I’m sharing two data drawings I made representing Cye’s newborn period. I recorded all the times I breastfed Cye, beginning December 21 until mid March. Each row is a day, each column is an hour. The blue sections with light blue dots are times that I breast fed Cye. The darker area shows night (sun down) and the orange section represents daylight period. Framing the composition are remedies for low milk production, fenugreek and fennel, and symbiotic animals: aphids and ants. While most data is represented and collected with the purpose of analysing, predicting, and optimising, this data collection is about observing the gradual emergence of circadian rhythm, curiosity about what patterns may arise without interference, and a desire to capture and represent cherished moments of Cye’s fleeting infant hood.
