Create a questionnaire and ask others to fill in the blanks. The questions should be universal, provocative and compelling. Although the questionnaire may seem superficial at first, this assignment is intended to encourage self reflection and spontaneous human interaction on an otherwise "normal" day. When the project is over, compare what people do and not have in common.
