MFA Thesis Process Book
My process was informed by a variety of research methods including informationarchitecture, user experience design and social sciences. First, I created a storyboard to understand the problem of the patients.
Later, I conducted card sorting workshop to discover mental models and perception of different pain.
I inquired more than 50 individuals to visualize pain. Afterward, I compiled a Visual Pain Lexicon, where the meaning of pain is communicated through colors, shapes and visualmetaphors.
Pain Communication Model using the Pain Lexicon
The use of the visual metaphors enhances the quality of the pain communicatio by adding more details, which makes easier for the receiver to empathize and comprehend the mystery of the pain.
