Ephemeral emergents and anticipation in online connected creativity
Warren, Lorraine and Fuller, Ted and Lane, Giles and Bryan-Kinns, Nick and Roussos, George and Lesage, Frederik (2009) Ephemeral emergents and anticipation in online connected creativity. In: Proceedings of the WebSci'09: Society On-Line, 18-20 March 2009, Athens, Greece.
In this paper, we seek to address the challenge of online connected creativity by studying the emergence of novelty in the ‘Sensory Threads’ project, a six-month project currently underway as part of the EPSRC cluster project, http://www.creatorproject.org/, (EP/G002088/1), New Research Processes and Business Models for the Creative Industries. The cluster brings together practitioners from the creative industries with researchers from varied traditions that span ICT, the arts and humanities, the social sciences, and business studies, through the establishment of pilot projects, such as Sensory Threads that have a creative, technical and value-creating dimension. The paper extends previous conceptual and methodological work concerning the capture of the emergence of novelty and processes of learning and knowledge transfer in on-line settings comprising multiple actors, uncertain outcomes and diffuse data sources..
