Journey+Text to Spaces

What if journey through text determines the space?

In the third part of the project, I will be combining both the methodologies that I had explored on into a space. Translating into spaces using journey and text analysis.

By doing so, this would allows the space to be more personal and unique. Thus, each space will varies base from one’s journey and story.

How I translate journey to spaces here is by documenting each user’s time caricature activity. This allows me to see the intensity of the time spent in the space. From here, I then document the journey using quick thumbnailing sketch to capture how one sees and how one uses the space/objects. While journaling the circulation, what I had done is indicate the direction of the user faced.

I went back to further deconstruct EM Forster’s short paragraph again to help me build my narrative. I wanted to create my own narrative after exploring and learning from his structure of the text. There are two important structure as to how he build the story.

1. The way he described the scenes
2. The way he sequenced the descriptions

Therefore, in this section, I will be creating a different narrative based from the user’s journeys and ideals.
