Problem-solving oriented version of a four-square matrix.
I’ve added (and overlaid,) two valence drivers–these are the typical pairing used to deploy evaluation of antipathy and sympathy, a basic starting point.
An intention for learning is articulated.
Two dichotomies are randomly drawn from the master set of 96 dichotomies, a part of the tool, Playing With the Opposites. These are next plotted, with Plot #1 placed first.
The obvious location of a dialectical tension first jumped out from the upper left quadrant.
Bring creative work to the world pushes away the mysterious element in the actual problem, yet, this antipathy is conjoined with a sympathetic mystery located in the setting.
The question for further wandering or exploration is to, I propose, locate the nature of the sympathetic mystery in the setting of the problem, in the art world. This mystery’s nature would be something deeply obscured yet attractive as a matter of what little is known about it.
The other drivers, familiarity/unfamiliarity might serve as kernals for winding up/down the dialectical reflection.
In each quadrant of the matrix there are two dialectical loops given by each pair of valences. For example, in the lower right quadrant are:
Problem / toward / inner masculine // (2) Setting / away from / inner masculine
Problem / familiar / inner masculine // (2) Setting / unfamiliar / inner masculine
