My Latest Book: The Creative Reflective Practitioner
Research Through Making and Practice, 1st Edition
The book explores what it means to be a creative reflective practitioner, whether working alone, in collaboration with others, with digital technology or doing research. Variations of reflective practice that extend the original concepts proposed by Donald Schön are described. The book is relevant to anyone who wishes to understand creativity and reflection in practice and how to learn from the creative practitioners themselves.
The complete set of practitioner interviews is available here.
My keynote talk at ArtsIT 2019 focused on four kinds of creative amplification with digital technology illustrated by the works of creative practitioners. The ideas are based on chapter 5 of my book.
