*How do you visualize a system and its data?
Shhh!Sex is a systems design project with the purpose of understanding the hush-hush scenario of sex and sexuality education in India and the world. This was a ten week long intensive project where we studied, mapped, diagnosed problems and proposed solutions for this complex system of values, taboos and pedagogy. This gigamap (6*12 feet) is a culmination of data and insights we gathered on sex and sexuality education. It aims to represent the entire process insights we gathered on sex and sexuality education. It aims to represent the entire process and findings, in order to explain the sexuality education scenario in a single connected infograph in order to enable the viewer to understand the complete system and solve for it if need be.

Creating the final giga map took us about three weeks. The aim was to represent our entire process and findings, in order to explain the sexuality education scenario in a single connected infograph. We went through a rigorous process of sorting out all the data, numbers, insights, questions, and solutions that we had collected, and segregated the important ones which we wanted to highlight. We put down all the relevant selected data on a huge chart before moving to a digital version. Initially, we built the overall structure of the map so that we can organise the information flow and ensure an understandable layout. After iterating the basic structure a number of times, we moved on to further detailing out the broader headings, according to the preferred visual hierarchy.
