Sevaldson, B., (2004) Designing Time: A laboratory for time-based design, Paper and presentation at the Future Ground conference in Melbourne, November 2004.

Time based design lead to investigations into networks of relations and systems oriented perspectives. It is still a good way of learning systems thinking.
