Ellie Harrison

Ellie Harrison is a multi-media artist based in Nottingham (UK). Over the past six years she has completed a number of year-long projects for which she has monitored different aspects of her everyday routine. In 2001, for the project Eat 22, she photographed everything she ate for a year.

She often documents these projects online, experimenting with different ways of visualising the data she collects. In 2005 she created a web-based Swear Box, in which she archived every sentence that she uttered that year which contained a curse word. Tea Blog is a further experiment in using the web to display and access an archive of intimate information.
