Abstract:

  • Panel: Sensation, Meaning and Affect in the work of art / science / technology collaborations

    Keywords: Creative emotions, emotional creativity, feeling, affect, ensation and meaning, facial interfaces.

    This paper describes a practice-led research project that addresses issues of emotional creativity and affect. A series of three-dimensional works were developed to discuss and demonstrate an exciting moment of new tangentiality; and an understanding of the emotional face as interface evolved. With this research a crossover zone was explored, where computer technology affects the material realm and where digitally driven processes interact with traditional ones, describing a hybrid practice. The practice aims to reflect on an interdisciplinary research process, including the study of creativity and synthetic emotions. This research is carried out in collaboration with the Digital Media Research Innovation Institute at OCAD University in Toronto, and the Rapidform Print Research department at the Royal College of Art in London.
