The Resilience Journal is an analog tracking tool dedicated to visualizing the overlooked, soft data in our lives. Often chronically ill bodies encounter their quantified selves in the form of medical hard data. What if we looked at the qualitative numbers that make up illness? In this workshop we will work on identifying different soft data sets and discussing the aspects, or ‘dimensions,’ of each person’s nuanced, daily resilience. Part artistic therapy, self-advocacy tool, and DIY data collection, this Resilience Journal is designed to illuminate the ill experience, make space to honor pain, and hopefully over time, become a living data archive of acts of resilience by chronically ill and disabled bodies.
