Computers and Creative Design


This paper introduces notions of creativity and creative design as a form of computational exploration. Exploration is used as a means of defining spaces which are then searched. It is shown that schemas provide an opportunity to describe exploration. Emergence as a process which modifies schemas is described, as a 'creative process'. Visual emergence is elaborated and other forms of emergence are described. The role of emergence in creative design is presented.
