I am a writer and researcher with a passion for creative practice in art and technology. After many years of academic research, I now work freelance and am co-director of ArtworksrActive (ArA) My current research focuses on creative practice in art, design, science and technology with a particular focus on qualitative methodologies for designing and evaluating interactive digital systems. I have over 20 years’ experience in research into creativity and digital art and have written over 100 papers and articles about the creative process, the role of technology and the methodologies for investigating these areas of research. Recent writings on the subject include the co-edited books Interactive Experience in the Digital Age: Evaluating New Art Practice (Springer 2014) and Interacting: Art, Research and the Creative Practitioner (Libri 2011). My book ‘The Creative Reflective Practitioner’ was published by Routledge in December 2019.
