The Little Things
An exploration of happiness
The main idea of this project is to explore the concept of happiness and what it means. Essentially it will explore what happiness means to different people and will be compiled together and showcased as an interactive project.
The online documentary will provide information on the project as well as cover the general idea of what happiness means. It will showcase collected ideas, concepts and contributed pieces from members of the community regarding their happy stories and ideals. It will also allow users to reflect on these ideas put forward by others as well as submit their own content.
The project will subside as a web-based interface online.
