artifact description
Brief excerpt from interview: It's very different to write research [rather] than a journal. Going to a real life setting, it's almost instinctual to write like a journal entry. It's hard to get your mind in the gear to write like a scientist... So you have to not write passively, and also remove yourself from it... That was the challenge and taking all these notes and drawing a clear picture.
