IMPETUS > personal | public

PERSONAL

  • personal interest, hobbies
  • educational and professional goals
  • cultural background [x]
  • experiences [x]
  • childhood, family [x]
  • travel, work job
  • previous design experience [x]

eg. contact with diabetic patients, direct and indirect,

A friend was pregnant and developed gestational diabetes and that tremendously complicated her childbirth, and now affects her lifestyle. I want to help people like her develop a positive attitude to tackle a changed lifestyle. This is an example of an individual changing her life, and becoming aware of her condition.

My best friends niece developed diabetes, and i saw how the childs family had to transform their lifestyle to cater to the childs needs. I want my piece to be able to reflect that the change in lifestyle is not unmanagable. This is an example of individuals being impacted by a loved one’s life changing.

I want to impact social and lifestyle change for all my south asian friends in new york, and help prevent diabetes.

PUBLIC >

  • environmental + social conditions
  • specific events
  • physical space and location
  • favorite and inspirational people
  • technological progress
  • politics

eg. Eve Ensler wrote the Vagina Monologues and impacted international perceptions of female sexuality, and by campaigning to end violence against women, created a dual purpose for the play.

Pray the Devil back to Hell

Liberian women fight for peace.

personal activism feeding into a greater cause
