CECAN’s ‘The Visual Representation of Complex Systems’ at Environment, Economy, Democracy: Flourishing Together #RSD6.

Visual Representation of Complex Systems

By Dr Joanna Boehnert, CECAN Fellow

As the first step in developing my CECAN research project titled ‘The Visual Representation of Complex Systems: A Typology of Visual Codes for Systemic Relations’ I was thrilled to have the opportunity to engage with the Relating Systems Thinking and Design community last month. The Environment, Economy, Democracy:  Flourishing Together RSD6 conference (at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design, Oslo, Norway, October 18-20, 2017) was an ideal place to collect ideas from designers, academics and sustainability practitioners with expertise in systems mapping, design and the visualisation of complexity.
