Visually explore and examine the shape

Squares and rectangles are stable. They’re familiar and trusted shapes and suggest honesty. They have right angles and represent order, mathematics, rationality, and formality. They are seen as earthbound. Rectangles are the most common geometric shape encountered. The majority of text we read is set in rectangles or squares.


Squares and rectangles suggest conformity, peacefulness, solidity, security, and equality. Their familiarity and stability, along with their commonness can seem boring. They are generally not attention getters but can be tilted to add an unexpected twist.


During the experiment about the square, it becomes apparent that people have multiple perceptions of the same square based on its orientation. When referring to a square, people visualise the most common orientation of the shape which is a square placed with one of its sides parallel to an imaginary horizontal surface. Thus, when asked for words associated with a square, people refer to a square in this orientation.

Based on my Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and minimalism. I have to make sure my space is clean, nothing belongs to me, nothing disturb my seat. This kind of (sickness) brings me an idea to become this project main theme.

During the underground journey on the first two weeks, I have collected quite a lot of interesting items, that was my start point, so I have been collecting more and more this time. I also extend the area I collect, not just the gap between the seat, I get off each of the stations, and spend some time in each platform to find some items which are the people left behind.

Based on the items I found in the underground, I will put them into a book design, ( just like a Diary ), recording the colour, which station I get off, and the item’s name.
