the last twelve months, Lucy Kimbell has been meticulously recording
details of her emotional, physical, psychological, sexual and artistic
life and assessing the data against a series of 'performance indicators'
on a personal index called the 'LIX Index'. This new, enhanced version
of her 'LIX Index' website incorporates a host of new interactive
features (such as allowing users to input their views about the
LIX). Users can also track the 'state' of Lucy Kimbell against a
range of other indices: is she performing better than the FTSE?
Is she 'up' or 'down' against the average mean temperature in London?
This inventive and engaging artwork highlights our contemporary
obsession with statistics and offers further evidence of the blurring
of the boundaries between 'private' and 'public'.
LIX Index has been produced in collaboration with Visual
designer: Carlo Tartaglia, Chief technology officer: Christian Glover-Wilson
The free LIX SMS service is supplied by UCP AG.
