Social Network Map

This was an exercise to think about representation of information. We were asked to use our facebook network to display and categorize the information. I chose to use three axis of the body to maps and a selection of foods to symbolize various aspects of my relationships.

The location on the body, the type of food, and the shape of the shelf were utilized to create meaning in the arrangement of relationships. Closer to the body outline on the shelf meant deeper and more meaningful relationships, the fragility of the shape of the shelf (pointed, round, long, etc) is related to the type of relationship.

Garlic meant strong, intimate and influential while the penut symbolized stable, common and strong relationships. Lovers lend themselves more to plain sugar while long term intimate relationships were represented with Peppernut cookies, sweet but more substantial.
