I’ve had an interesting time looking at people’s small versions of their mood boards, because I get a really different idea of what’s going on at various scales. For instance, I still see the formal relationship between the Forsyth tables in the bottom right, and the check boxes and ethnic hybrids on the top left, but the texts REALLY stand out at this condensed scale.
I am really excited to see where you go with this – though I did have one thought/question – ‘belonging’ and ‘translation’ are such broad terms, i would love you to unpack them (maybe a brainstorm/map for each? with subsequent visual or movement lexicons?). While I see social science playing a role, and all the corporate/ HR tools for understanding type and understanding (sorry to fixate on that but your visual references FEEL of that world of imagery)., I really want you to unpack your own passion and innate understanding of what interests you about this.
