The Johari window is a technique that helps people better understand their relationship with themselves and others. It was created by psychologists Joseph Luft (1916–2014) and Harrington Ingham (1916–1995) in 1955, and is used primarily in self-help groups and corporate settings as a heuristic exercise. Luft and Ingham named their model “Johari” using a combination of their first names.
In the exercise, someone picks a number of adjectives from a list, choosing ones they feel describe their own personality. The subject's peers then get the same list, and each picks an equal number of adjectives that describe the subject. These adjectives are then inserted into a two-by-two grid of four cells

The Firebird used to live in a wet forest with their community. One day, without previous notice, their house was put on fire by someone who couldn’t understand the way they were living. And so the Firebird flies away from home. The Fire Bird migrates to the city, in the north, alone, and finds a place to sleep where no human could find them. The thing is that they were carrying an invisible fire seed inside their belly. So in the place where they slept, they dream for so long, that the invisible seed that was inside of their belly finds time to germinate and turns into a tree.

A Conversation is an online experiment orchestrated to explore vulnerability among strangers in the digital realm. You will be assigned a pseudonym and paired up with a stranger in one of three chatrooms. Everything said in each chatroom is visible to each of the other chatrooms. As you converse with your partner, we urge you to ask yourself: what compels you to keep a conversation going? How honest do you want to be? And how would you like to portray yourself given that you are anonymous?
Each session at most can host 6 players; all others become observers.
