me, doing this. is a programme built in Max/MSP that visualizes myself programming this programme to visualize myself programming…
In realtime (while coding), I collect the mouse data (screen position, mouse down, mouse up), and whether or not I’m currently working or procrastinating. The white lines are when I’m working (the patcher in focus), and the red lines are when I’m procrastinating (patcher not in focus). Each dot represents a mouse down, and the brighter they are, the more clicks that have happened in that area.
This was part of a small afternoon project for a data visualization class at CIID.
