  1. Next you will be asked to complete an initial questionnaire, which takes about 5 minutes. Once you have done this you are set up to participate in the project.
  2. In the following 2 weeks, you will be asked to answer a set of questions 3 times per day. Each assessment will take you approximately 1 minute to complete.
  1. At the end of each set of questions you will have the chance to take a photograph of the ground or floor where you are standing.
  2. There is also an opportunity to capture an 8-second audio recording of your current environment.
  3. These steps are optional. These photographs and audio files will be analysed for research purposes and, furthermore, may be posted on our social media, our website and used for digital art exhibitions to promote the project.
  1. At the end of the two-week trial you will receive an individualised report summarising your experiences during this period. We hope you enjoy taking part in the Urban Mind project!
