1.0 | Mapping Behavior

1 / 1

Prompt: In this exercise, we will map our daily movements and visualize them through drawing. These maps will reveal overlaps and tensions between different activities and spaces, highlighting potential opportunity points for intervention.

3 types of spaces:

  • Physical - movement, walking, biking, running 
  • Mental - reading, music, games, walking, writing, gardening
  • Social - dining, talking, playing, gathering

Deliverables:   For this assignment you will each create a behavior map for one of the listed spaces above. You can use drawing or mixed media.

The behavior map must communicate the following information visually. For example, you can use different line weights, colors, and shapes to define different variables and conditions. 

  • Qualitative Information: ( ie. duration, intensity of activity )
  • Expected vs. Unexpected 
  • Conflict zones (either between two divergent activities happening in the same place, or between yourself and others in the house)
  • Context ( shows the space over which you are mapping as a background)
