Blog + Note Scan

connection_list

I took a walk down memory lane, and decided to scan through my entire blog and my notebook from front to back. I wanted to organize words and categories in a way that could act as a quick–read summary  of what I’ve been processing this term. I’ll probably hang this on my ceiling above my bed and maybe cover my car windshield with it (just kidding). I broke down my collection of words into four categories: Content, Technical Elements, Space/Form and From Nature. These seemed to have emerged as my main areas of interest over the past few months. Granted, a few or many of these will be crossed out or swopped for something new as I continue my explorations, but I feel this list helped me find clarity and a clean base to build upon.

Pulling from these, I think some of the more major attractions I have are:
– THE UNEXPECTED
– DESIGN RESEARCH AND DOCUMENTATION
– SPACE/ FORMATION OF SPACE
– PERSONALIZATION
– NATURE AS AN ELEMENT THAT HELPS DICTATE THE SPACE

Thought Organization: Think Map

I also designed what I call a Think Map to help me organize my thoughts. There were a lot of keywords floating around my sketchbook as well as repeated in my writings, so I decided to see if I could find linkages between these recurring words and themes. I also included elements of interest, such as space and nature. I highlighted a few keywords I felt were the most relevant to my search: Incoming Information, Spatial, Network, Nature and Catalyst. These are main elements I want to explore further in the coming weeks. View the full scale Think Map here.
