  • Jennifer Seevinck
Part of the Springer Series on Cultural Computing book series (SSCC)


The artist and researcher discusses her working with the concept of emergence to create digital, interactive art systems. Her creative practice is largely driven by emergence theory, the conceptual framework or initial problem of a creative work, and research into people’s experience of interactive art.
