Documentary film published by Metric Life

2017.08.07 | Anne-Mette Pedersen

This portrait documentary film focuses on the self-tracking practices and habits of a dedicated self-quantifier from Denmark, Thomas Blomseth Christiansen. Thomas is no ordinary self-tracker. For the last eight years, he has been meticulously tracking and documenting various aspects of his life and health, ultimately ridding himself of his severe allergies and improving his overall health, as a result. The film captures some of Thomas’ experience while also providing reflections on the wider implications and ethical dimensions of self-tracking and quantification. The film is directed by Btihaj Ajana (AIAS) in collaboration with Jens Haaning.  

IMC Researcher Christine Parsons participated in this documentary film.
