Astory: I sit at my computer but compose.design first on paper with furtive scribbles, marking and re-marking words until they lay flat and still as if they were meant to be there—here—in this exact location. The page darkens and fills with unexpected arrows and numbers and lists as I try to say this connects to that to this. Soon I am lost. The computer beckons, but I resist its organizational charms. I cannot find the ideas when I have to concentrate on the keys, hunting for single letters when I am thinking in complete thoughts. I return to my notebook and realize that its structure is inadequate for the shaping of my thoughts— the regularity of the lines patterns in predictable ways, yet my mind wanders another, more dimensional path. This dilemma has been with me for years, and, with deference to my childhood, I have taken up a method of research and composition akin to pin the tail on the donkey. I tear apart my notebook and begin to notate on small scraps of paper, soon taped together along the wall beside me. White, yellow, and brown papers help me to distinguish between ideas. Lists become constellations, numbers neighboring galaxies. Soon layers appear, and string is added to facilitate connection. It is a thing of beauty.design But beauty is not my objective, and I move to the computer to try and bring order to my precious model of words and string. The cursor blinks patiently at first, but I detect a hidden urgency in its intermittent posture. At times I believe it is watching me, daring me to enter its dark field to trace an alphabet of stars that will illuminate distant readers. But my words resist the uniformity of the typewritten lines as well, and soon the string is back, taped from screen to wall, a tiny tightrope my thoughts navigate freely and without fear. I traverse the potential intersections at a fiendish pace, editing with Scotch tape and mind alike, order growing among the apparent chaos. I note its likeness to a model of entropy moving toward a condition of rest.design While few would argue that this method of composition is appropriate for all writers, I would like to suggest that, as an idea, it offers a valuable model for design research occurring during the latter stage of the design process. At this juncture, the literal search for information has concluded and the race to shape the mass of data into some semblance of a coherent argument begins. Upon reflection, the student Traversing Edge and Center: A Spatial Approach to Design Research designer may raise the question, What does it take to define and defend an idea? Certainly, the answer is variable and dependent upon the specifics of the design problem. But a general strategy of problem assessment, definition, and argument can be facilitated by a spatial approach to research that is rooted in a metaphor of travel, dwelling, and interaction.design
