The conchospiral model is a 3D model created by Dr. Keiko Honda, Ph.D.,
MPH, to show how art engagement and co-creation strategies can be used for
individual identity (re)formation and community development.


The shape of the model is inspired by the conchospiral shape of sea shells, a
naturally occurring pattern that has a basis in mathematics and the golden
spiral. The three axes of the spiral are arts engagement, co-creation/social
support strategies, and Maslow’s growth needs.


We have created a fictional story from a young person's perspective to explore
