What is Vision Integration?
The vision integration process uses iterative cycles of rapid visualization with expert feedback for developing complex, future scenarios and innovation for that future. This kind of design and visualization practice is common in industrial design and entertainment industries where skilled artists and designers can rapidly accelerate innovation discussions. However, the practice is novel when applied to strategic planning, forecasting and large scale social systems. “Vision Integration” is the term coined at Art Center to describe this experimental practice. There are of course many instances in history where “artists concepts” have been used to inspire change to greater or lesser effect. Vision Integration intends to formalize the practice and make it a repeatable and deployable process for teams. The forthcoming mVIP card deck is one application of this research.
