An exploration into the fabrication and transformation of data into 3D physical forms. Running data from has been extracted from Strava and used as a source to construct individual mile markers: 3D-printed physical representations of each stage of the run. Each object represents a single mile; the length of the object indicates the speed each mile was run at (longer objects indicate a slower pace during of the mile), and the shape of the marker is an indication of the elevation of the terrain. These ‘data objects’ can be collected and compared together, sorted, or viewed individually, presenting a new way to deconstruct and view the data giving a physical, ‘tactile’ form.
