New technologies make our lives easier, but they also have a disorientating effect on us. In order not to get lost on a mental level, we make lists, write diaries, etc. For my master proof in graphic design I made a personal map, collecting memmories, moments of inspiration, etc., bringing together all environments I was confronted with on a daily basis (the countryside/nature, the city and the virtual), providing myself with a tool that would help to become more conscious of my surroundings and the paths I am taking.
On a table objects were put together and mapped. Each of them also had a code attached to them which would give access to a computer database of media files that each give a glimps of the background of the specific object/souvenir. Even though the visitor was confronted with a subjective, and thus hard to read, map, there was no explanation of what certain styles of lines and dots stood for. The only way the viewer would discover the logic behind the system, would be to explore the map and puzzle it all together, thus seducing the audience to think about organizing systems.
In short this project was about: information design / personal cartography / subjective mapping / non-linear narratives / typography / video / interaction/interface design / etc.
