Every phenomenon in the world is connected in one way or another. No entity that you can possibly imagine stands by itself. As a result, people tend to think in series whenever they confront problems. This mode of thinking facilitates the association of one item with another and, in turn, links the new object with the subsequent one. It can be best encapsulated as an endless cycle of thinking. My thesis is a visual depiction of the interconnectedness of the world and, at the same time, a mind map that can attract people to pause and digest the information they perceive. It is my hope that my thesis can inspire people to pay greater attention to their thinking patterns and nurture individuals’ thinking habits and abilities, while, crucially, also guiding them to contemplate what “thinking” entails.
My design has been inspired by the “Impossible Bottle,” an ostensibly miniature structure that contains an almost infinite amount of information, just like our brain. If you think about everything habitually, the whole world is in your head.
