Jo Blogs Guide To Documenting Nonsense Slightly Mathematically
Here is one of my days in a pie chart. Drawing it combines several of my favourite things.
1. Pretending to be a mathematician (or secretary or notary)
2. Drawing with a dip pen
3. Acting as if my day was important enough to be recorded
4. Imagining myself to be an outsider artist, earnest, methodical and lacking in self awareness but not quite institutionalised.
5. Looking back years later and analysing* findings.
(*= being amused by, at best. Saddened by, at worst).
NB. The amount of time spent in the toilet includes tidying it and shooing my son out of it.
In which case, I can’t help thinking that drawing pie charts of my day might not be the best use of it. I couldn’t be bothered to fill in the final ‘actual’ chart so perhaps I knew it pointless then.

So finally, on a Documenting Nonsense theme, here is a pictorial map (that’s stretching it) of my movements during a 12 hour stay in a Staywell apartment while filming in Manchester last month. (I had just spent an hour looking at the Japanese Outsider Art exhibition at Wellcome Gallery so was probably inspired by that)
