How can one describe social interactions? What if there was a code to notate non-verbal communication? How close people are from each other, orientation of their bodies, eye contact, loudness of their voices, etc. The Proxemic notation system can help one describe specific social behaviour to effectively communicate their observations. On the other hand, the system can be used to express the types of social interaction one feels comfortable to be involved in, or it could be used to regulate such behaviour in a public space with the help of graphic symbols. The system creation was inspired by Edward T. Hall's work on Proxemics-study about how people organise their space depending on cultural and social context.
