Exploring Creativity

1,519

Published on

Creativity is a complex phenomenon, not easily measured or observed with traditional scientific instruments. However, if we replace sensors with humans, we might manifest new perspectives on creative processes. Developing on arguments he introduced in his PhD thesis about children and exaptive technologies, Jean-Baptiste Labrune explore the implications of reflexive Creativity Research Tools (CRT) for the description and analysis of creativity in art and science research labs.
