Creative Artifacts

Parsons School of Design via Coursera


Creative Artifacts is about expanding the definition of creativity, from multidisciplinary perspectives such as computer science, psychology and artistic practices, into domains like personal artistic practices, corporate innovations, and urban policies. You will look at renowned artists who use the latest machine learning techniques in a compelling way to expand their creative capacities. You’ll also examine different business strategies and economic policies that aim to make organizations and cities more creative. Then, you will actively engage and collaborate with others in the class through discussion prompts and have an opportunity to reflectively write about a creative project that inspires you.
