Welcome to Green Frigate

Titles published under the Green Frigate Books imprint aim to explore the horizons of the natural and built environments, and the relations of humans within them. The goal of the imprint is to reach its readership by producing works that fall in the cracks between those offered by traditional academic and popular presses. Specific categories include ‘Design, Interiors and Architecture’ and ‘The natural and built environments’. In common with Libri Books, the imprint should be of interest particularly for members of ‘communities of practice’ in the natural and built environments.

Interacting

This book is about interacting in its many forms, including interaction between artworks and audiences, between creative practitioners from different disciplines and between those practitioners and the norms of research in contemporary society. Interacting: Art, Research and the Creative Practitioner uses the experience of leading creative practitioners to provide a unique perspective on these interacting elements.

Interacting gives a primary voice to practitioner researchers in the emerging academic discourse about creative practice and research, a voice which has been somewhat muted in debates about the nature of practitioner knowledge and the role of the artefact in knowledge creation. By creating and evaluating interactive artworks, the contributors challenge existing notions about the role of research in practice and their accounts provide fascinating insights into the growing phenomenon of artworks shaped by the audiences who interact with them.

As workers within the field of human–computer interaction, the editors’ interest in creativity in art, design and technology has led them to develop methodologies for research capable of producing evidence simultaneously with the creation of new artefacts. They and the other contributors, all of whom have been associated with the Creativity and Cognition Studios at the University of Technology, Sydney, demonstrate both that there is much to recommend in the bringing of research into creative practice and also that research itself can be transformed by way of creative practice.
