The Creative Cognition Lab explores how new ideas emerge through active engagement with a physical environment embedded in a rich set of sense-making cultural practices. We are interested in how new ideas emerge through engagement. We don’t think skin cuts nature at its joints, and resist attributing too much causal importance to what goes on inside a person or a person’s head. Rather, we look for cognition as it is realized at the intersection of people, objects and culture.
