The CODE-X series catalogs a vast codex of source codes (aka “signs”) extracted from past audits.
Note that signs on their own, while sometimes interesting, only become truly revelatory and useful once they’re sorted into thematic complexes, and the complexes into codes, and the codes into a meaning map. We call this process “thick description”; the Code-X series is thin description.
“BIG PICTURE” NORM: Learning to perceive the signal within the noise — systems thinking — how it all works.
“BIG PICTURE” FORMS: Complex yet simple forms, charts and graphs — visual metaphors for systems. Matrix-sense of seeing the secret patterns. Perceptive tonality. “Understand and influence the entirety of the system.”
