Making Connections

Design Problem 2

1. Identify a facet of your life that expresses who you are: the places you have lived or travelled, your evolving taste in music, schedule during a busy work week, or the elements in your apartment.

2. Gather together all the content to be included in your diagram. Study the relationshipd among the elements. Will they be arranged chronologically? Geographically? Do elements overlap or conflict with each other?

3. Create a graphic language (points, lines, boxes, curves, colors) and a spatial organization for your ata. Allow form, color, and configuration to grow out of the hierarchy and natureof the content. Include a key or legend in your design.
