Information Technology and Creativity

Publications

 Beyond Productivity: Information Technology, Innovation, and Creativity examines the dynamic intersection of information technology with the world of the arts and design. This intersection has already yielded results of significant cultural and economic value, including innovative architectural and product designs, computer animated films, computer music, computer games, interactive art installations, cross-cultural experimentation, and Web-based texts. However, many opportunities for new collaborative ventures remain to be explored. (2003)

Project Scope

This 18-month project will convene a range of people from the computer science and arts communities to explore issues at their intersection. Advances in the underlying disciplines and associated applications, development of transdisciplinary thinking and activity, and the evolving institutional environment will be addressed. The committee will address both technical and contextual (e.g., institutional environment, funding) issues, and it will compile its observations and develop recommendations for mechanisms that would enable and sustain productive cross-disciplinary collaboration in a report.
