Identify what I see and make notes that explain what I’m capturing.
Document the subject. Take the photo with my phone or with whatever is available. Just capture the moment and write down notes.
Mark up what I see. There could be many layers of information on an images.
Keep it somewhere. In this case on the server. I annotate annotate through tags–that what you see and the references that I see in the world are captured in the notes.
Explorations into how to digitize my annotation process and how to input/aggregate into a database to collect data that describes the ethereal design expressions of brands, cultural movements, and people–to me they are all entities. This is a tool I use in my own research process to draw inspiration from projects like Personas or Hacking Couture. This project is a tool that informs my research, which is a central part of my creative practice.
