The act of lighting a candle in remembrance is one that goes back far into human history. As a child, I would see the votive candles in the back of the church I attended, and that formed the core inspiration for this project. However, people have done similar projects. The one that particularly comes to mind is Simone Giertz's Every Day Calendar, which uses light-up buttons representing the 365 days of a year to track a single activity. It too is a physical, visual object that exists in the home and users interact with it to track whatever they wish. It's an offline project, much like the original scope of my project, and I admire how it doesn't see a need to push people towards their goals other than acting as a reminder. Change comes from within.
