SUMMARY : Today two key words that come to the fore in the author's rational of the future are fungibility and empathy. Fungability, of course, has been central to our notion of modernity in the classic form of 'money', where everything can be classified in terms of exchange value and traded without regard to its physical manifestation. Yet a more powerful form of numerical code appeared in the 1950's that has been growing in prominence ever since. The basis for digitization of data that underpins the computers operation can enable all phenomena to lose their bodies and live as numerical code that can be easily materialized in different forms. So, the focus of creativity in relation to culture must be more than aesthetic design, it must engage with the capacity and flows of information, and pose questions, offer alternative perspectives and indeed perceptions. Creativity in the future involves seamless integration of what we currently, in the physical world, think of as three distinct realms: inside, outside and in between.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
