The Supportive Cycle diagram was born on Feb 6, 2021 when I was re-thinking on the Platform-for-Development (P4D) framework (v1.0)
with the concept of Supportance. The framework (v1.0) suggested a new unit of analysis: Platform(Project). I remained the unit of analysis and used supportive movements as a core idea to design a diagram. I called the final outcome the Supportive Cycle model
In the past several months, I modified the diagram and designed several new diagrams for different concepts and models. Last week, I realized this is a great example of Diagram Development. Thus, I created this Miro board to review the process of my creative activities around the diagram. I also designed a new diagram for the concept of Supportance.
The reflection shows there are three turning points within the developmental process of the project.
- Feb 6, 2021: Turning Point A
- April 22, 2021: Turning Point B
- June 6, 2021: Turning Point C
In 2018, I wrote a 108-page personal thesis titled Diagram Explained. I developed a framework for understanding multiple layers of diagrams.
- Layer 1: Schema of spatial relationships
- Layer 2: Models of domain cognition
- Layer 3: Application of models
- Layer 4: Artifact of epistemic tool
- Layer 5: Mediation of human activities
In order to help readers understand my creations. I used five types of diagrams for this case study.
- Layer 1: Meta-diagram
- Layer 2: Diagrams for Theories, Diagrams for Abstract Models, Diagrams for Concrete Models.
- Layer 3: Diagrams for Case Studies
