This is the map i created for my map of my project so far. It is pretty much a glorieifed spider diagram- 25 words which can be linked most ways and any random 5 would create an interesting relationship and project. The map is firstly an illustration of my territory- this is the words. On the other side are various shapes of various sizes. The tool part of it starts when the viewer is asked to pick a set of 5 cards- do they pick all the cards of a certain shape, all the cards of a certain size ones, or the diagonals, the most aesthetic pattern or randomly. These choices then corespond to the words on the reverse creating new groupings. (The words on the reverse are also ordered (by shape) into 5 categories Curation: labeling, criteria, rhyming objects, display.
Frames and Boundaries: gaps, proximity, storage, horizontal space
Accumulation: repetition, gathering, acquisition, copying
The Collector: sequential, completion, validation, context abstraction
The Artifact: taxidermy, scale and proportion, typologies, sets and groups, specimen
