Lucas commented on who points at whom in cyber conflicts?

Hello Dima, thank you for your comment.

My idea is defined by the following characteristics / goals:
/humanize abstract positions in cyber conflicts
/ask where and when cyberspace becomes an actual real-world place (/problem)
/ask questions in and about cyber conflicts (and in general:)
/find and use analogies and metaphors to describe complex (cyber security) correlations

So pushing it further does not mean to focus or to hold on to this graphic style (nevertheless I took a conscious decision on this minimalistic yet simplistic approach to start the topic with a "welcoming" not too complex visualization).

Depending on the thematic direction of the following openideo process, this rather means to select a few different and really specific cyber security problems (together with cyber security experts) and tackle these with the described approach (see characteristics). The outcome could be graphical but even mixed-media approaches or actually real-world design installations could be a tool to work around the theme of cyber security and offer options to experience what this topic / field implies. The next step would be inviting others (non-experts) to review / experience the outcome, followed by the documentation of their feedback (depending on the design outcome this can be done on a website survey or maybe even in person). This feedback would be the input for the next iteration (which in this case probably means finalization) and the final outcome.

Pushing my idea further would mean to follow a process oriented approach to work free from any biases and too early assumed solutions. The first step would be to create a few more (graphic) design examples concerning a specific cyber security and discussing them with the non-experts to integrate their impressions in my / our design process. After having (at least one) of these iteration(s) a final protoyp can be created, implemented and tested.

So long.
