The collecting of data, looking at it and thinking of how do make it come together, what the different things are that I'm comparing and how people interpret the question and the symbols(smileys), I realise that this is the most exciting thing. All the little short stories on each note, that people helpfully share because I'm in need of their help for this survey. The answers relate directly to feelings and moods, some are very brief and some very personal. They also relate to current events, such as exam-times, roodwork and swineflu.
I've been collecting data at different days, different times of the day. The results vary, depending on time of the day, with happier results in the afternoon than at 10-11am. The wheater plays a huge role in the results too - a lot of the results relate too, and comment on wheather also.
The test is anonymous, but I mark on a map where I was when I spoke to each person and what time it was. The reactions vary, but most are very positive and very helpful. Many ask for the connection to architecture!
