Expert eyes on creativity

by | Friday, August 03, 2018

Since 2012, the Deep-Play Research Group has been publishing a series of articles under the broad rubric of Rethinking Technology & Creativity in the 21st Century in the journal Tech Trends.

We have 15 interviews / articles completed with more to come. I just created a page to give easy access to all these interviews. Check out:
