This assignment was to map an emotional experience. “[A]n opportunity to begin to see the designed world around us, in the processes that we encounter in our lives and how they impact our feelings and affect. Developing this type of sensibility is a key part of understanding the power of experience for ourselves, and becoming savvy designers of experiences for others.” (Mishra, Assignments, deep-play.com)
This map was about asking for help from a diffuse network on a very personal, but ultimately low-stakes question of fiction reading suggestions. It is a surprisingly emotional activity involving layered relationships with objects and people, mediated through an asynchronous medium of Facebook. I tracked my experience with notes, then used Miro to map the experience, ultimately using sticker images to reinforce the emotional journey.
