Enabling Systemic Transformations

Fredrik Eive Refsli and Dino Karabeg

It is shown how “the power to transcend paradigms” – which has been identified as “the most impactful way to intervene into systems” – can be radically augmented by a different approach to information. Instead of updating a conventional “reality picture”, available insights are combined to compose completely new high­level views or gestalts, which co­exist and co­evolve through a dialog with one another and with the more detailed views. Polyscopy is described as a concrete instantiation of this approach. The Holoscope online platform is outlined as an application of polyscopy to enable (by illuminating the way) the global systemic transformation. This article is a strategy proposal and an invitation, extended to the interested members of the systemic design community, to take part in the transdiscipline we are developing around Holoscope, to evolve it continuously.
