Interdisciplinary techniques and methodologies for employing creativity across research practise.
Keywords: Post Digital Design; Context Engineering; Macroscopic Visualisation; Spacification
In the fourth ICT Work Programme under FP7; Objective 1 of Challenge 8: ICT for Creativity and Learning defines the research priorities and the expected impact as “a better understanding of the potential of technology in human creative processes” and “fostering the synergy between understanding and enhancing human creativity, and new technologies”
This lecture and workshop will focus on how we can bring some powerful creative design processes together with available analogue and digital technologies to explore the 'possibility space’ of our research practises.
One of the fundamental methods of employing creativity across research practice is to find methods and tools that review the construction, deconstruction, and reconstruction of the individual research landscape itself. Some of the other interdisciplinary techniques and methodologies for employing creativity across research practices will include:
1) Performing analogue and digital context engineering.
2) Re-navigating using macroscopic visualisation.
3) Exploring the content-form relationship involved in research writing.
