Within the systemic design community, there is a large possibility of data visualization and data physicalization tools, among them we have the phylogenetic matrix called the Environmental Genetic Code (EGC) – introduced at RSD6 by Patrice Ceccarini – Systemic Design, Affordances, and Architectural Profiling.

Collective intelligence

After 15 years of practice, the pedagogical and research team will challenge the matrix through a workshop intended to outline a collective intelligence version of the EGC and more specifically to set an augmented version in prism with Embodied Computing. Like a hackathon, the aim is to collectively contribute to the co-sketching.

To facilitate an inter-trans-poly-disciplinary weaving, the workshop has five facilitators from different design or thought approaches, among which we are thrilled to see how the following can hybrid with EGC:

  1. Dutch layers approach (DLA)
  2. sEEs matrixes (derived from the DLA)
  3. System architecture engineering
  4. Embodied computing
  5. Free Thinkers (other systemic design approaches and semiotics)

Participants might be PhD students, researchers or professionals. Participants complete an online form, whereby their reply will state their profile classified into five interest/work/research particulars, that will determine the group they will join. (Table 1)

Like “weaving the fabric” metaphor, each group produces a thread that will be intertwined with others to produce a collective work.

Nota bene: the findings will be analyzed and implemented in F. L. Rasoloniaina PhD thesis.

Faciltators

  • Collective intelligence / EGC (mobile facilitators): E. Mortamais, P. Ceccarini
  • Systemic Design: Ole Moysad, Jørgen H. Skatland
  • Dutch Layers Approach, sEEs: Linda Maring, TBA
  • System engineer: Eric Lacombe, Jean-Luc Wippler
  • Digital Trace & Embodied Computing: C. Wacta (tentative), E. Ekizoglu
  • Free thinkers: Semiotics, Diagrammatic: Per Aage Brandt, F.L. Rasoloniaina

Workshop format

120 minutes | TBA | maximum participants 25

Workshop Agenda: Collective Intelligence

Two sets made up of three weaving rows each; running concurrently.

FIRST SET

1st weaving row: the line-up 30 minutes

The line-up: the 5 approaches will be presented to the 25 participants, who will join the group they are dispatched into (5 groups of 5 participants).

2nd weaving row: the 5 groups mind maps 50 minutes

The mind-maps line-up: each group will work on a mind-map of their collective versions of the Augmented ECG.

3rd weaving row: the Augmented ECG mind map 40 minutes

The mind-map set-up: based on their disclosed respective mind-maps, they will all work on weaving and combining the ideal final collective version of the Augmented ECG.

SECOND SET

1st weaving row: the 5 groups mind maps 60 minutes

The mind-maps line-up: each group will work on a mind-map of their collective versions of the Augmented ECG.

2nd weaving row: the Augmented ECG mind map 50 minutes

The mind-map set-up: based on their respective mind-maps, they will all work on weaving and combining the ideal final collective version of the Augmented ECG.

3rd weaving row: the feedbacks 10 minutes

The participants and the facilitators will express what they have learnt and what they will take away from the experience.
