resilience journal by yo-yo lin

the resilience journal is an analog tracking tool dedicated to visualizing the overlooked, soft data in our lives.

created as an artistic tool for self-reflection, the journal culminates into a circular data visualization. With each instance tracked, a section of the circle is filled in, creating a month-long, daily ritual of mark-making and self-engagement. this methodical form of tracking creates a distinctive wheel of shades and colors personal to each individual’s illness/ disability experience, and concurrently a unique dataset and data visualization of a complex, surviving way of being.

the resilience journal is designed to illuminate the ill/disabled experience, make space to honor pain, and hopefully over time, become a living data archive of acts of resilience by chronically ill and disabled bodies.
