Shinji Ogawa, Bipin Indurkhya and Aleksander Byrski: A Meme-Based Architecture for Modeling Creativity. In: Computational Creativity 2012 ICCC 2012, 170-174.



This research is a collaborative work between a visual artist, a computer scientist, and a cognitive scientist, and focuses on the creative process involved in connecting two pictures by painting another picture in the middle. This technique was in- volved in four Infinite Landscape workshops conducted at Art Museums in Japan and Europe over the last five years. Based on the artist’s verbal recollection of the ideas that occurred to him as he drew each of the connecting pictures, we iden- tify the micro-processes underlying these ideas, and propose a meme-based, evolutionary-inspired architecture for model- ing them.
