This time, I chose to do exploration #22: SIT IN A PUBLIC LOCATION AND DOCUMENT PEOPLE YOU SEE FOR ONE HOUR. TAKE DETAILED NOTES. MAKES SKETCHES OF ONE ITEM THAT STANDS OUT MOST ABOUT EACH PERSON.
I go every day to my school by train, this travel takes one hour. So it was an efficient time commitment.
I made some notes and sketches:
It was kind of funny to do this exploration. It felt I was a spy, who had to solve a crime. My first notes were mostly about their appearance, after a while I also began to note how these people were ‘moving’ in the space. For example, reading or listening to music. Normally I’m not very aware of people around me in the train. But this time, I had to be. I found out that everyone is very cut off from the outside world. Individualization is confirmed through this exploration.
