Thought and Life Logging (Tholilo) is an interdisciplinary research project of computer engineers and psychologists. One aspect of Tholilo is to understand how daily context influence our mood and temporal thinking. In this contribution, we present a data collection framework which records sensor data and survey responses from smartphones to infer user’s context, user’s mood and temporal thinking. In a pilot study, data is collected from two collectives located in Turkey and in Switzerland. We examine correlations between phone data and surveys. As a proof of concept, we show how phone data is correlated with changes in participant’s mood. We conclude with lessons learned and future work.
