First of all, I consider this very much a work in progress.

My parametric object is a monument that attempts to stand as a testament to my ability to be productive. The object is part information visualization and part performance, representing my focus on work as time passes.  Using data from the application and service RescueTime, I was able to ascertain how much time I spent doing productive activity on my laptop and how much time I was being unproductive.  For each hour, a layer is made, with its height, skew from the center, and size determined by data such as time spent on the laptop and how much of that time was productive or spent on distractions.  I was hoping to create objects that were both interesting and beautiful, however lots of work needs to be done to reach that goal.
