Abstract

Creativity: The Actor in Performance focuses on what it takes to be a creative performer. Many stage-actors succeed in rehearsals, yet under-perform where it counts—in performance. But, as actors know, performance is a thing unto itself—something is going to have to happen out there beyond anything that happened in rehearsals. This book provides actors, their teachers and directors with insights into the creativity of the actor in performance.An historical account of the emergence and development of one of the most generative concepts of our times – creativity - provides a theoretical backdrop to a critical discussion of the creativity of acting - a discussion that includes analyses of Denis Diderot, George Henry Lewes, William Archer, Konstantin Stanislavsky, Michael Chekhov, Michel Saint-Denis, Zeami and Eugenio Barba. Creativity: the actor in performance concludes by offering a detailed rationale for performance-oriented actor training, offering examples of workshop exercises (CREATICS) which focus on developing four main competencies crucial for successful and creative performances: situation awareness, audience awareness, divided consciousness and presence.

Abstract

A group of international top scientists from a diversity of disciplines sat together for five days with artists, designers, and entrepreneurs to develop a trans-disciplinary theory of creativity. Organic Creativity and the Physics Within assumes that creativity is a quality of nature visible in physics as well as in psychology, its basis being combinatorics, coincidence, complementarity, and fractal emergence. The authors prompt a mechanism cutting through particle physics, perception, psychology, and culminating into playfulness. Organic Creativity and the Physics Within connects us to the universality of nature's creativeness.

Abstract

ca. 200 words; this text will present the book in all promotional forms (e.g. flyers). Please describe the book in straightforward and consumer-friendly terms.[During the 20th century, the world experienced an unprecedented rise in people’s cognitive abilities. IQs increased 30 points (with the average IQ remaining 100 only because publishers reset the “average” on their tests). Yet, society’s ability to confront serious problems in the world seems as challenged as ever. Problems such as air pollution, global climate change, increasing disparity of incomes, disputes that never seem to move toward resolution (such as between the Israelis and Palestinians), and increasing antibiotic resistance—all of these and many other problems seem to defy us, despite our elevated IQs. Why are there so many serious problems still confronting the world? Why is IQ insufficient for solving serious problems where differences in people’s interests are at stake? How can intelligence, broadly defined, help us to create a better world and solve the seemingly intractable problems the world confronts? The essays in this book address these questions and provide some directions for answers.

Abstract

Technological and economic concerns have long been the drivers of debate about copyright. But diverse disciplines in the humanities - including literary studies, aesthetics, film studies, and the philosophy of art - have a great deal to offer if we wish to establish a more nuanced and useful conception of copyright and authorship. This volume brings together scholars from a range of disciplines to explore the challenges inherent in translating aesthetics and creativity studies to concepts of copyright, especially as longstanding approaches are troubled by the rise of the digital.

Abstract

Education has shape. Such a quality, inherent to human formation processes, can be verified through centuries. The present text displays several sound theoretical arguments, oriented towards two basic goals: Investigate the historical connection between the architectural and educational dimensions, in terms of innovation. Propose a series of creative strategies that can be useful for universities when planning their urban&architectural implantations. Thus, one of the underlying intentions is to set up synergies between three aspects: the expressed theoretical arguments, the project references, and the one corresponding to pedagogical activities developed within disciplines narrowly associated to the remarked creativity. Such synergies converge in the present work, in order to compose a thematic body that, combining the cited conceptual base with the always exemplary praxis (both educational and architectural), serves as a valid tool to inspire processes of pedagogical and spatial requalification in Higher Education institutions. Under a global perspective, this text is the outcome of innovative actions carried out by the two authors in the last years, combining research and teaching initiatives in the areas of knowledge of Architecture and Fashion, which traditionally have shared a series of composition features in their designs. Following a global impulse addressed to foster creativity, they were developed in the Escuela Politécnica Superior (USPCEU), and in the Centro Superior de Diseño de Moda de Madrid (UPM). In addition, it is analyzed the relation existing in those innovative activities between the educational and spatial aspects. Consequently, this work is characterized by its interdisciplinary profile, which can promote future creative teaching&learning projects in different areas of knowledge. The overall intention is to provide universities with innovative experiences that can help them all to foster sound optimizations of their mission, affecting both the educational dimension and its urban&architectural shape.---La Educación posee forma. Esta cualidad, inherente a los procesos formativos del ser humano, puede constatarse a lo largo de los siglos. El presente texto desarrolla un conjunto de argumentos teóricos sólidos, orientados a dos objetivos básicos: Investigar la conexión histórica entre las dimensiones arquitectónica y educativa, en clave de innovación y creatividad. Proponer un elenco de estrategias creativas que puedan ser útiles para que las universidades, cuando planifiquen sus implantaciones urbanístico-arquitectónicas. Así, una de las intenciones subyacentes es establecer sinergias entre tres aspectos: los expresados argumentos teóricos, las referencias proyectuales, y el correspondiente a las actividades pedagógicas desarrolladas dentro de disciplinas íntimamente relacionadas con la mencionada creatividad. Dichas sinergias convergen en el presente trabajo, con el fin de impulsar un corpus temático que, combinando la referida base conceptual con la siempre ilustrativa praxis (tanto educativa como arquitectónica), sirva como herramienta válida para inspirar procesos de recualificación pedagógica y espacial en instituciones de Educación Suprior. Bajo una perspectiva global, este texto es el resultado de acciones de innovación llevadas a cabo por sus dos autores en los últimos años, combinando iniciativas de investigación y enseñanza en las áreas de conocimiento de Arquitectura y Moda, que tradicionalmente han compartido un conjunto de rasgos compositivos en sus diseños. Siguiendo un impulso global dirigido a fomentar la creatividad, fueron realizadas en la Escuela Politécnica Superior (USPCEU), y en el Centro Superior de Diseño de Moda de Madrid (UPM). En añadidura, se analiza la relación existente en dichas actividades de innovación entre los aspectos educativos y los espaciales. En consecuencia, este trabajo se caracteriza por su perfil interdisciplinar, que puede promover futuros proyectos de Enseñanza/Aprendizaje creativos en diferentes áreas de conocimiento. La intención general es aportar a las universidades experiencias innovadoras que puedan ser de ayuda a todas ellas para promover optimizaciones consistentes de su misión, afectando tanto a la dimensión educativa como a su forma urbanístico-arquitectónica.

Abstract

We live in the era of the knowledge-based economy, and this has major implications for the ways in which states, cities and even supranational political units are spatially planned, governed and developed. In this book, Sami Moisio delves deeply into the links between the knowledge-based economy and geopolitics, examining a wide range of themes, including city geopolitics and the university as a geopolitical site. This book will prove enlightening to students, researchers and policymakers in the fields of human geography, urban studies, spatial planning, political science, and international relations.&#xD;

Abstract

This book offers a fundamental contribution to the literature on the creative industries and the knowledge-based economy by focusing on three aspects: urban spaces as key sites of capitalist restructuring, creative industries policies as state technologies aimed at economic exploitation, and the role of networks of aesthetic production in inflecting these tendencies. It simultaneously goes beyond these debates by integrating a concern with the cultural and aesthetic dimensions of the creative industries. As such, the book is relevant to researchers interested in the transdisciplinary project of a cultural political economy of creativity and urban change.

Abstract

Forgeries are an omnipresent part of our culture. They are closely related to historically and culturally informed ideas of authenticity, legality, authorship, creativity, tradition and innovation. Based on the concept of mimesis, the volume illustrates that forgeries are thus not to be understood as a negative copy or disgraced rip-off of an original – but as an autonomous aesthetic practice, a creative act in itself. The contributions focus on such different implementations such as faked traditions, pseudotranslations, imposters, identity theft, and hoaxes in different arts and historic contexts. Most importantly, they scrutinize the bonds and borders between original and forgery, and turn out their epistemic capability.
