Three relations-oriented maps: one is developed according to the library of systemic relations, and two represent process tools.
1. Types of Systemic Relations
We tend to be object oriented and less oriented towards the relations. This map demonstrates a relations oriented mapping. The map is developed according to the library of systemic relations. This map was made by Young Eun Choi under the guidance of Birger Sevaldson.
2. Relations Oriented
This gigamap shows several of the mind switches of SOD. It started with the entities or objects which were networked with relations. From the start, the objects were written down in relatively small text. Then the first object oriented network map was dampened with a layer of transparent foil. Further analyses of existing and newly created relations were done with colour coded threads as a new layer.
The map indicates a move from object oriented to relation oriented design. At this stage, the map no longer emphasises the reading of the singular elements, but it indicates a holistic reading of the picture or figure of the system, the gestalt. The map is a process tool and not meant for communication beyond the two students who produced it, for whom the map is familiar on a detailed level.
