In this perspective we consider visualizations as transformation processes within the Data-Information-Knowledge (DIK) continuum. In the paper we discuss the continuum, and apply the transformation process model to the main disciplines of visualization. Visualizations represent powerful cognitive tools that surround our everyday life 1. By doing this we are able to think about visualization from a multidisciplinary perspective, exploring the role of visualizations in design practice, as artifacts that are used in facing problems of various degrees of complexity and nature. The contribution of the model is mainly addressed to orientate and nurture the reflective practice and to formalize the strategic more than the technical role of visualizations in the design discipline.}, booktitle={2010 14th International Conference Information Visualisation}, publisher={IEEE}, author={Masud, L and Valsecchi, F and Ciuccarelli, P and Ricci, D and Caviglia, G}, editor={Banissi, Ebad and Bertschi, Stefan and Burkhard, Remo and Counsell, John and Dastbaz, Mohammad and Eppler, Martin and Forsell, Camilla and Grinstein, Georges and Johansson, Jimmy and Jern, Mikael and et al.Editors} , year={2010}, pages={445-449}}

@article{Ciuccarelli_Ricci_Valsecchi_2008, title={Handling changes trough diagrams: Scale and grain in the visual representation of Complex Systems}, url={http://www.allemandi.com/cp/ctc/book.php?id=26}, abstractNote={To change towards a more sustainable development could means to make decisions not only with a systemic approach, but also to be able to decide in the right time: the density. It seems that, when the discipline of Design integrate a systemic approach with the competences of designers in visualization, it can cope with dense situations, providing effective artefacts diagrams - to improve the decision process and making profit from the richness of complexity. The prior findings of the Complexity Science are here assumed as a theoretical framework to have an interpretative model on how the knowledge about systems could be organized and depicted. Three tools to produce effective diagrams, framing, graining and scaling are here discussed though six case studies.}, journal={Changes}, publisher={Allemandi}, author={Ciuccarelli, Paolo and Ricci, Donato and Valsecchi, Francesca}, editor={Cipolla, Carla and Peruccio, Pier PaoloEditors}, year={2008}, pages={1-17}}

Combining the opportunity offered by the findings of the Complexity Science with the framework of the multi-disciplinary debate on the meaning and use of diagrams, we propose a design methodology to help designers support their interventions in complex environments. The structural features analysis of Complex Systems has been our key point to outline this methodology to offer designers a new mindfulness in the use of design tools. This methodology is based on five phases: analysing, representing, pinpointing, timing and telling. It provides a theoretical framework that incorporates many tools suggesting a different use of them with a special attention to improve the designerʼs consciousness of the system he is designing in. When design is addressing complexity, diagrams could become generative tools that can be used to produce metadata relevant to the design process.}, author={Scagnetti, Gaia and Ricci, Donato and Baule, Giovanni and Ciuccarelli, Paolo}, editor={Poggenpohl, SharonEditor}, year={2007}}
