What if my thesis informs who I am?

I have made some significant progress over the past week, but now I need to change the title of my thesis. I knew that I would be able to still use a part of my previous idea, but I didn’t know how to execute it until I reframed my question.
    I have always enjoyed the process of getting to know people—I’m a listener, not a talker. I figured this would be a good place to start and include the context of being in an art school. As I wish I had the opportunity and time to take more classes in other majors, I wanted to frame my thesis project as a venue for learning more about other artist’s processes. I will still be conducting interviews with students to make a book, but I will no longer be interviewing the entire graduating class. By selecting no more than one person from each major, I will be able to get more in-depth information about each medium, and how each student uses it to communicate their particular ideas. Further, I will no longer be interviewing artists about what their space says about them, but investigating what artists are able to learn about themselves through their own art-making practices and processes.
     I started off by interviewing Jackie King, who is majoring in sculpture, and has been a close friend of mine since the beginning of my freshman year. Her hour-long interview gave me a lot of information to comb through, and by the time I got home I had already come up with a series of follow-up questions for her as well as new questions i wanted to ask the next people I would interview.
     I wanted to find other artists at MECA who not only do amazing work, but are able to speak well about it, so the following day I asked a number of my classmates for advice on whom they thought would be the best people to interview. By the end of the week I had interviewed Greta Wilsterman in ceramics, and Heidi Hayden in illustration, and had gotten five more people from other departments to agree to be a part of my book.
