Creativity is a highly-prized quality in almost any domain of human endeavor, whether one is crafting tangible objects from physical materials, or mental objects from concepts, words, pictures and musical notes. It is a diverse, multi-faceted phenomenon that demands a diverse, multi-disciplinary perspective. By bringing together a wide range of creative producers and consumers, in domains as diverse as cognition, language, music, gesture, image and computation, this volume offers the student of creativity a new and exciting perspective whose many facets form a comprehensive and coherent whole.
