Abstract: Computational creativity support tools expand what we can create and the mediums in which we can express ourselves. They also affect how we approach the process of creation — how we structure our work, our mindsets, and our self-perception. In this talk, I will discuss how engagement with diverse domains of creative practice through qualitative research and system building can expand our vision of the role of computational tools and the values they embody.
