THE CYCLE OF EXPERIENCE
The Cycle of Experience is a core Gestalt conceptual tool for tracking correspondence between awareness, choice, and self-responsible action. It models how needs and wants are ideally sensed, articulated, engaged with, acted upon, satisfied, and assimilated through meaning-making processes. When a change is needed or desired, successfully integrating internal and external reality requires moving “full circle” through the Cycle.
To create my manifesto, I wrote my interpretation of the 12 steps of the cycle, correlating it to my design process.
The motion representation is also composed of cycles of life and nature.
