These events are sparked by the launch of the new book from the Creativity and Cognition Studios at the University of Technology Sydney.
Interacting: Art, Research and the Creative Practitioner
Edited by Linda Candy and Ernest Edmonds – Libri Publishing, UK
"This book is about interacting in its many forms, including interaction between artworks and audiences, between creative practitioners from different disciplines and between those practitioners and the norms of research in contemporary society. Interacting: Art, Research and the Creative Practitioner uses the experience of leading creative practitioners to provide a unique perspective on these interacting elements.
As workers within the field of human-computer interaction, the editors’ interest in creativity in art, design and technology has led them to develop methodologies for research capable of producing evidence simultaneously with the creation of new artefacts. They and the other contributors, all of whom have been associated with the Creativity and Cognition Studios at the University of Technology, Sydney, demonstrate both that there is much to recommend in the bringing of research into creative practice and also that research itself can be transformed by way of creative practice."
The Launch | Thursday 24 November @6pm - Queen Street Studios - 10-14 Kensington Street, Chippendale
Featuring performances by David Burraston, Andrew Johnston and Ernest Edmonds, the Queen Street Studios will be an amazing and raw space with which to emphasise the experimental nature of the work and to introduce the book to Australian audiences.
