What Shape Are Ideas?

I am working with Fact & a group of young people at Weatherhead high school, on a project exploring what our thoughts might look like if we could see them all around us.

So far the group have investigated ways to make connections between words and shapes, and then created different breeds of shapes to represent different thoughts, emotions and memories.

Here are a sample of some of  the shapes developed so far.

The group decided that memories are the most complex shapes, with a mixture of smooth and sharp edges, as memories are sometimes pleasant, and sometimes painful.
