A node map on a geographical map background.  The node map is made up of yellow, teal, pink and lime green circles with links in between the circles.  Each node has a unique label.  For example, a node labelled ‘uneasiness in stairwell’ is connected to another node labelled ‘normalised drug use’.  There is also a filter box with buttons to show or hide different node groups.

The image depicts an abstract digital artwork with lines and shapes resembling interconnected nodes or a cosmic network. The background is black, resembling outer space with scattered white dots representing stars. In the centre, there are two larger blue shapes, one appearing like an atom or nucleus with orbiting lines, and the other resembling a swirling vortex or spiral pattern. Slender, glowing blue lines crisscross the image, creating triangular and geometric patterns, connecting the central forms to each other and to the surrounding space. The overall effect evokes a sense of interconnectivity, complexity, and a visualisation of unseen forces or networks in the cosmos.
