Thank you Layne for the amazing links and recommendations -- for the tremendous wealth of information! I'd love to learn more about what you mean by mundane experiences. Do you mean small details (for example, something like: she routinely hums to herself while chopping vegetables but disdains formless elevator music to such a degree that she'll walk out of stores with any such aseptic tones playing)? Or something else, something more detailed and developed? I wonder if there's a better way to capture mundane experiences in such a way that it evokes emotion from the person viewing/absorbing those experiences -- some vein of recognition?

Also, I'd be interested to hear more about your comment related to accessibility, too. I wonder if you'd have some time to chat some time to hear more about your thoughts in detail? I can't figure out how to chat directly via the OpenIdeo platform. But if you're interested, please feel free to send me a Linkedin invite:

In the meantime, I'm going to spend more time absorbing the resources you sent me. Those prototyping and other resources will be extremely useful. Thank you again!

Hi Duane Pierce , Thank you for the recommendations and additional thoughts. I'd love to hear more from you about the ways you've seen people share stories, and more about your experience with your father. I'd love to find a way to bring the person to life better in a hospital/ward. Given the time constraints of workers in that setting, I haven't yet understand their full needs in order to solve the problem of humanizing the person into something beyond a "patient." I'd love to chat with you to learn more about your experience and further develop this idea. Would you be free to chat in the next couple of weeks? Perhaps I can also run by you some of the other feedback I've received.

Thank you Joanna Spoth for the guidance and the recommendations! I have received feedback from multiple people and will be making updates to the idea. Thank you again!
