These interactive conceptual models were done for Miso Kim's Conceptual Modelling class. The brief was to select a topic, explore it thoroughly, and then come up with an abstract, categorical model describing the topic, and then a more descriptive model working with a concept and target audience. The class was divided up into groups and our group chose to model religions and belief systems.
After researching and brainstorming, looking at the differences and similarities between various religions, we came up with a way of categorizing them based on several identified characteristics. Three major categories emerged: the Divine, religions that were primarily monotheistic and creation oriented, the Balance, religions that believed in karma and the cycle of birth, and the Natural, religions that worshipped well, nature and the spirit world.
