title Serial Sketching : Feedback Mechanisms in Designing
source System Research, Informatics and Cybernetics, International Conference (5th : 1990 : Baden- Baden, Germany). For Cognition in Design Session, abbreviated paper
summary Designing is seen as a process of small-step transformations of partial images of a still non-existing entity. The ultimate objective of the process is the production of sufficiently coherent and comprehensive representations of design entity, so as to allow the construction of a visual simulation of it, physically or mentally. Sketching is universally used by designers throughout the front-edge of the process as a major tool for the generation, transformation, and representation of images. Serial sketching, often executed on consecutive layers of transparent paper, allows the designer to experiment with changes while fully controlling previous versions of an image. Feedback from each version informs subsequent transformations. This typical characteristic of design behavior is explored through on-line studies quotidian design activity and is compared to modes of production in other domains
