Infographic of the Day: How Your Feeling of Time Changes with Age

Why Time Flies shows how time flies with a different speed with years.

Austrian designer Maximilian Kiener developed a website Why Time Flies, which helps you find out how the perception of time changes with age.

The chart looks like an interactive timeline, broken down into years, which imitates the flow of the human life: the older the age, the faster the page scrolls.

Kiener says, when creating this visualization he based on the theory of French philosopher Paul Janet, who claimed that the perception of time at the particular moment depends on the ‘absolute’ amount of time. For instance, when you are five, a year is 20% of your life, and when you are 50, only 2%.
