After my classmates and I had finished interviewing our artists, we each contributed words and short phrases to a list - 6 from each student and 6 picked from the themes discussed by the artists.

I had originally intended on using the 72 in a "magnetic poetry" style, adding prepositions, pronouns, parts of speech that were appropriate. Instead, I used almost solely the words I was given - adding punctuation, images and 2 #trending words to tell stories visually, and without muddying the page with translations of the words given to me in Chinese characters.
