EACH DAY FOR THE DURATION OF THE DAY-TO-DAY DATA EXHIBITION AT DANIELLE ARNAUD CONTEMPORARY ART ELLIE IS AGAIN RECORDING DATA ABOUT HER EVERYDAY LIFE. EVERY MORNING (THAT THE GALLERY IS OPEN) THE DATA IS COLLATED AND TRANSFORMED INTO A UNIQUE INSTRUCTION SHEET FOR THAT DAY.

THIS INSTRUCTION SHEET IS THEN EMAILED TO DANIELLE WHO USES IT TO RECONFIGURE OR REPROGRAMME EACH OF THE SIX SETS OF OBJECTS THAT MAKE UP THE DAILY DATA DISPLAY ROOM.

WITHIN THE DAILY DATA DISPLAY ROOM, FIVE OF THESE SETS OF OBJECTS ARE USED TO DISPLAY THE RESULTS OF ONGOING EXPERIMENTS TO TEST WHETHER THERE ARE CORRELATIONS BETWEEN CERTAIN DAY-TO-DAY EVENTS AND EXPERIENCES. TO CARRY OUT THESE EXPERIMENTS, ELLIE AGAIN TAKES ON THE DUAL ROLE OF DAILY DATA LOGGER AND SPECIMEN. FOR MORE DETAILS ON THIS SPLIT PERSONALITY SEE THE INFORMATION REFERRING TO THE DAILY DATA DISPLAY WALL (THE FIRST INSTALLATION EMPLOYING THESE TWO CHARACTERS).

THE FIVE EXPERIMENTS TEST WHETHER THERE ARE CORRELATIONS BETWEEN:

- THE OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE AND THE NUMBER OF CUPS OF TEA THE SPECIMEN DRINKS
(REPRESENTED BY THE HEIGHT OF THE BALL ABOVE THE GROUND AND THE SIZE OF THE BALL ITSELF)

- THE TIME THE SPECIMEN SPENDS SLEEPING AND THE NUMBER ARGUMENTS IT HAS
(REPRESENTED BY THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE FLOODLIGHT AND THE COLOUR OF THE GEL ATTACHED TO IT)

- THE AMOUNT OF TIME THE SPECIMEN SPENDS ON ITS COMPUTER AND THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE IT SPEAKS TO
(THE SPEED AT WHICH THE FAN REVOLVES AND THE NUMBER OF MINIATURE MIRROR BALLS CLIPPED TO ITS FINS)

- THE SPECIMEN’S AGE AND THE NUMBER OF STEPS IT MANAGES TO WALK
(THE DISTANCE OF THE MEASURING CYLINDER FROM THE BACK WALL AND THE NUMBER OF TENNIS BALLS IT CONTAINS)

- WHETHER ON NOT THE SPECIMEN IS HUNGOVER AND THE NUMBER OF GOOD IDEAS IT HAS
(WHETHER OR NOT THE POLICE LIGHT IS ON AND THE AMOUNT OF AIR THE IN THE INFLATABLE BANANA)

THE SIXTH OBJECT IN THE DAILY DATA DISPLAY ROOM IS NOT USED TO DISPLAY THE RESULTS OF AN EXPERIMENT, BUT INSTEAD IT DISPLAYS A VARIABLE, WHICH WILL ONLY OCCUR ONCE FOR THE DURATION OF THE EXHIBITION.

THIS VARIABLE IS WHETHER OR NOT IT IS THE SPECIMEN’S BIRTHDAY AND IS REPRESENTED BY THE DISCO BALL. WHEN IT OCCURS, IT IS INTERESTING TO OBSERVE WHAT EFFECT THIS VARIABLE MAY HAVE ON THE FIVE EXPERIMENTS BEING CARRIED ALONGSIDE.

WITHIN THE INSTALLATION THE DAILY DATA LOGGER FEATURES AS THE PRESENTER OF AN EXPLANATORY FILM. THE DAILY DATA LOGGER MOVES BETWEEN EACH OF THE THREE MONITORS POINTING AT AND DESCRIBING THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE OBJECTS, IN FRONT AND ABOVE HER, AS SHE GOES.

THE INDIVIDUAL INSTRUCTION SHEETS BELOW GIVE A DETAILED DIAGRAM OF EACH OF THE SETS OF OBJECTS DESCRIBED ABOVE.
