Going through all my research thus far, along with some of my qualitative research experiments like walking on streets and trying to observe how strangers might greet me, surveys on Instagram, sitting in my cohort’s classes to observe their projects, precedents, TED videos, personal stories from friends, art projects about strangers, etc, here’s my first initial mind map.

Notably, the mind ‘map’ has no lines, and that’s what I haven’t yet been able to establish. However, the words are within relatable clusters. My next step is to pick out patterns and ideas from these.
