A book about interacting in its many forms--including the relationships between artworks and audiences, between creative practitioners from different disciplines, and between those practitioners and the norms of research in contemporary society--this account provides a unique perspective on these interacting elements. Combining creativity in art, design, and technology, this account demonstrates that there is much to recommend in the bringing of research into creative practice. It also shows that research itself can be transformed by way of creative practice.
