From smart phones to automobiles, understanding the human genome to exploring social networks, scientific and technological innovation is the result of the work of not just scientists and engineers, but artists and designers as well. The challenges of the 21st century demand creative processes that stem from the realization that design, aesthetic, and technological development have become symbiotic. Form no longer follows function; form and function are inseparable. In this colloquium we will be discussing and analyzing the creative process in the context of working on trans-disciplinary projects in a studio environment. We will explore innovation by combining the diverse perspectives of the artist, designer, engineer, and scientist.
