Idea archives: Documenting and analyzing creative workflows

Info about event


Monday 21 October 2019,  at 14:15 - 16:00


The AIAS Auditorium, Building 1632, Room 201




Creative processes revolve around fostering, synthesizing, exploring, communicating, and transforming ideas. The process of capturing ideas in idea archives, such as notebooks and digital repositories, is therefore a central component in creative work. In line with the general trend towards digitalization, idea archives are also becoming digitalized. The focus of this talk is on how to study and analyze creative processes, in particular idea archives, and the potentials and limitations of digital tools to support and augment creative workflows.

Short bio

I am a Professor of Interaction Design. I explore the use and design of digital systems from a humanistic perspective. The focal points of my research are collaborative design, creativity, innovation, and tools and spaces that integrate digital and physical aspects in meaningful ways. Currently, I am combining these areas of research by exploring how digital tools influence creative work. I am Principal Investigator of three projects: COCREATE, PLACED, and Creative Tools, and Director of the Centre for Digital Creativity.
