This is an ongoing project on documenting and visualizing the human desire for happiness. Basically, many different friends on my Facebook were spammed by the following message: "Help me out with my Digital Media Class! If you were to have only one of the following things what would it be? Also rate how certain you are of this on a scale of 1-5 (5 being 100% certain) -Money -Sex Appeal/Good Looks -Fame -Love/Relationships -Wisdom/Intelligence Side-note: You can message me your response if you do not wish your answer to appear publicly on Facebook..."
This was all done with MS Paint for Windows.
Each shape in the picture corresponds to a desire (Money=Squares, Sex-appeal=Diamonds, Fame=Star, Love=Triangle, or Wisdom=Circle) and each color represents the individuals certainty of this desire(1=White, 2=Yellow, 3=Orange, 4=Red, 5=Green). I plan to continue spamming friends on Facebook and updating the page with the drawing to document the different occurring patterns of human longings.
Here are some other pieces I have made using Microsoft Paint

I came up with this idea from many bored hours spent making pictures on Microsoft Paint. I thought it would be cool to use symmetrical shapes to construct a mandala-like representation of the inner workings of human ambition. This is the result thus far. I will continue to update this project so keep posted...
