In November of 2018, I received an Apple Watch and began focusing a bit more on my fitness
goals. One of these goals was to walk at least 30 minutes a day.
As I got some walks under my belt, I realized that I had a lot of data sitting at my
fingertips — Apple does a great job of collecting all kinds of metrics using the
iPhone and Watch in tandem, and stores all this data in their HealthKit APIs.
The "glyphs" below are a result of normalizing recorded walking routes to pixel coordinates
and mapping them over HTML canvas elements. Sprikle in a little CSS and—voilà—a heap
of data-driven, generative art.
Please enjoy, and follow me
