DANIEL FERREIRA     DIGITAL CREATIVE
A Methodology of Analysis article

The article The Creative Process in Digital Media: a methodology of analysis participated in the XVIII ANPAP (post) and the #8.ART (post) meetings, both in September 2009. [1] Read the abstract below: [2]

In this paper I present the initial phase of my masters research, In which Is proposed a reflection about creativity, style and authorship in the digital poetics.

The goal is to study the mechanisms of the creative process through an investigation of the collaborative relation between the artist and the machine, from the perspective of Software Studies.

One of the theoretical mechanisms adopted is a classification of the various layers involved in the creative process, starting at nature, going through social-cultural aspects and the crafts, and to the digital machine.

Key words: creativity, process, digital, methodology, software studies
