Former Nottingham Trent University student Ellie Harrison is prone to recording day to day data.

In 2002, aged 22, she spent a year taking photographs of absolutely everything she ate. In 2003 she then recorded a year of sneezes, she's charted her daily gaseous emissions, all the journeys she made on London Transport and she is presently recording every sentence she utters that contains swear words.

"Day to Day Data brings together a group of artists who take a methodical and scientific approach to questioning the world around them"

She's now found 19 other like-minded artists who like to collect, list, database and absurdly analyse everyday data to put together an exhibition of work at The Angel Row Gallery in Nottingham.

As her website states : "Day to Day Data brings together a group of artists who take a methodical and scientific approach to questioning the world around them."

"Through the analysis and representation of the data they collect, they give a truly new and often amusing vision of our own daily existence."

Lucy Kimbell will carry out a live survey on the people of Nottingham. Visitors to the Angel Row Gallery will be asked to respond to a question by removing and keeping objects from the six large perspex cylinders which form her Physical Bar Chart.

Helen Frosi will display her findings of Life:Lotto: a study into whether the winning Lottery numbers can be found in ciphers hidden in her coffee dregs and other miniscule daily occurrences.

Hannah Brown will issue her Daily Efficiency and Behavioural Analysis Checklists to visitors to the Angel Row Gallery and test whether they can match up to her vision of the perfect day.

There will also be a web-based exhibition featuring among others Adele Prince's research into shopping trolley migration around Nottingham.

Finally, Ellie Harrison herself will carry out a daily data feed to the gallery for the duration of the exhibition on constantly evolving Display Wall.
