- Design sixteen (16) pages that utilize the acquired data set to present a fictional character, which encapsulates a personality created by you.
- The entire class will collaborate to determine: subject, criteria, page design, interview categories, book dimensions, title, and working methodology utilizing the data set provided by classmates.
- All answers are pooled — generating a data set of questions and answers generated by the interviews
- Determine a visual interpretation; everyone has to include illustrations and photography. Visual material can reference: the question, answer, process, personality, criteria, background statistics, out-takes, and/or categories.
- Everyone writes a series of questions that address each of the fifteen categories plus the sixteenth base question.
- Record peoples responses in some fashion.
- The answers and information gathered would act as the data set for the group/class in which design solutions will be designed for.
- Record your process; take notes on location, body language, side comments etc. The out takes may also be documented or presented.
- Create a fictional character based on the data set provided by the class research. Use the data set to create a visual portrait of that character over a sixteen-page spread.
- Class to collaboratively determine the over all story arch that links the characters together in some way. This narrative needs to be created; ideas included a specific place like a jail cell in which they have all found themselves in (mostly due to the underlying and common 16th question; maybe they were protesters, spectators, witnesses etc.)
- Both an introduction and conclusion need to be determined and written to link the characters together in some manner.
- TBD — Include as author introductions the questions answered by each of you.
- Documentation and research statistics:
- Name (or anonymous), when, where, relation (family, friend, stranger), method (in-person, email, social network, phone), age, sex, and interaction notes.
