Creative Agents working in this research area are invested in studying the affective and sensory dimensions of creativity, encompassing a range of studies into the affective, emotional, unconscious, synesthetic, sympathetic, and microperceptual intensities of creative experience.
Because these dimensions of creative experience are often elusive and atmospheric in nature, we are also developing alternative methods and techniques for studying the circulation of emotion, attention, and intensity across a range of contexts. These include experimental engagements with new media and sensory technologies, with a focus on the implications of new empirical methods for sensing the flow of creativity and engagement across formal and informal learning environments.
Through our partnership with RMIT’s Urban School, Creative Agency is working to establish a Living Lab for actively experimenting with the sensory and affective dynamics of creative pedagogies within a working school environment.
