Words Exchanged

For my grandma’s 80th birthday, I collected, analyzed, and laser cut tiles of the top 80 words we have texted each other over the years.

To collect the data, I leveraged our iMessage conversation file stored on my mac and used a Python script to collect the top words in the file. From there, I transferred the words to an illustrator file for the laser cutter, and performed the cutting with support from the Fuse33 makerspace.
