Modeling helps explore the unknown. Through it, we gain insights that can enrich the world, ourselves, and others. This site explores models, modeling activities, and the modeler. We strive to understand the modeler’s inner world and external behavior as he or she models. We look for the “emerging perspectives.” And we communicate them with stories.
