A project visualising the change in my mental state and how it corresponds to dancing and whether I'm with or without company.
My question was: Can I make myself feel more fulfilled with dance?
I collected data for three weeks recording my content (green) and regret (red) throughout the experience. I used excel to gather and organise my data then visualised it in Adobe Illustrator.
I was able to see a shift in my general state of mind over the three weeks of data I gathered. Moving forward from a mixed state of regret and content to a more content state at the end of the data collection (I'm calling it a green shift).
I was also able to put in to context the amount of time I spend feeling nothing in particular. (I have been called an emotional robot, so I guess now there is some proof to that).
I also saw the overall way I feel around people in both states of regret and content. (In general I feel more content than regret in both situations, however I am more likely to experience more content and less regret on my own).
I also visualised the change in regret and content for each of the three weeks. It was cool seeing the regret values shrink as content grew consistently through the weeks.
I also noticed a drastic increase in events after I started dancing.
My conclusion: Yes dancing did make me more fulfilled.
