This experimental Studio Session focused our attention on Systems Thinking as applied to scribing.
We came together to both learn from the past – what we have done individually – and then venture into what we might embrace as new possibility within, and for, our practice at large. One intent of the session was to document what we do along the way and share our insights back with the broader community of visual practitioners. Here is a pdf document of our process and output.
