Workshop Abstract

In this workshop, we describe and expose the mysterious creative process. We discuss models (both classical and contemporary) of creative practice and experience and their potential application to new media arts and technology. Models that connect the roles of creator and viewer/participant are of particular interest. The goal is to catalyze new ideas and foster creative collaboration across disciplines.
