Emotional Receipts

Based on the collections of receipts I’ve collected over 2.5years in London, I’ve mde this publication dedicated to my parents with infographics of my expenditure. It shows both the qualitative and quantitative information that can be gleaned from simple receipts that are usually thrown away.

The publication features a reversible cover to reflect both qualitative and quantitative data, a ruler that shows the exact amount spent in pounds (as all the bars are at the same scale), as well as inserts on every spread that contrasts with the data visualised for each month.

Accompanying it is an interactive object proposed to be in my graduation show in London College of Communication. It features a mini thermal receipt printer which doesn’t print standard receipts but instead, collects the responses of people who tweet a specific hashtag with prompt questions related to expenditure.
