No one said this would be easy...
I spent the afternoon pulling ideas out of my head, trying to put together different pieces I had acquired through conversations and observations. The process expanded and contracted with the force of a human lung during a sprint.
The overall goal of this prototype is to figure out how to get people below the surface of their media consumption and making experience -- to see their habits and the opportunities for empathy and understanding those habits deny them.
The plan, at least for now, is to follow the path that keeps emerging within the overall media design project:
Media shapes belief --> Belief inspires Action --> Action shapes culture --> Culture shapes Media
It's a cycle that goes 'round and 'round -- and it doesn't always go in one direction. Sometimes it goes clockwise. Other times it goes in reverse.
This isn't, of course, a final version of anything other than the final initial peel of raw content out of my head. But it's my process. I am thinking this may be an initial worksheet to give to people to help spark empathy across different barriers. There's a while and a lot more work between what's on this board and the somewhere-close-to-finished experience. Stay tuned.
