Data self Portrait

What if our personal data is a material that can be transformed into something new? Using my own Facebook data as raw material, Data Self Portrait is a machine that creates "portrait" paintings based on the amount of likes, comments, and shares aggregated from my Facebook timeline.

Visualizations were created from translating JSON data into Processing sketches, then translated again into G-code and processed through an Arduino Uno board with a GRBL shield. 

Created as my final showcase project for Winter Creative Code Immersive at Gray Area Foundation for the Arts in 2015.
