Decision Making


It's really hard for me to make a quick, rational decision in a discussion, it always takes time to think it over and bring it on the table. Also making decision is risky, and as a person with the lack of self-confidence I need to ask thousands questions beforehand.

I decided to investigate the nature of decision making. I conducted a questionnaire for people to figure out, what they do and feel when making decision. In following projects I tried to reflect the anxiety of choosing and the uncertainty.

One day decisions

I asked people to describe decisions they make during a day. One person had described it precisely. This text is the basis for a video.









Three wheels

Among serious questions in a questionnaire about decision making there was a task to choose between five randomly chosen options, which don't make sense altogether at all. These options are: yes, no, maybe, green, three wheels. Seriousness and joke, rationality and spontaneity combine together in a poster.







Binary options

We are often forced to choose between two opposite options. Which one would you choose? Click on a coloured rectangle.

Thanks Eugene Kudashev for coding!






Make me decide
I'm bored, take me to Facebook




Parity book

Sometimes different options lead to a similar result. Is it a celebration of choice or just another problem we forced to deal with on a daily basis?





Sticker game

In following project I asked people to put a sticker to one of 12 rectangles in the poster. In fact, they were forced to make several decisions in one:

1. Choose a form
2. Choose a color
3. Choose a rectangle
4. Decide about the position of a sticker in relation to rectangle
5. Decide about the rotation of a sticker itself


For each sticker I gave them a banana saying 'Congratulations, you've made a decision'.

Participants:
'That's the tastiest banana I've ever ate'
'If only all the decisions I make were accompanied by the prize' 

This game is the celebration of every decision people make. There is no best, most rational etc. option, there is just an amount of equal options. It's up to us, which one do we choose.
