To create is to make. Given the importance of action in creativity, it’s strange to note that psychologists often ignore actions in creative cognition. This presentation demystifies creativity by unveiling its material traces, explaining how new ideas come about. Professor Frédéric Vallée-Tourangeau will discuss insight problems and how interacting with the environment enacts creative ideas.

Hosted by Dr Birsu Kandemirci

Birsu is a Developmental Psychology lecturer at Kingston University. Her research focuses on children's creativity, their language abilities, and how they understand other people's perspectives -she is fascinated by all the impressive abilities young children have!

The Materiality of New Ideas: Making Creativity Visible

Professor Frederic Vallee-Tourangeau (Professor of Psychology)
Insight problems offer an interesting platform to observe how new ideas are developed to solve simple but vexing problems. When participants can interact with the environment, they think with and through the world by building a physical model of the solution. Properly instrumentalized, such a procedure enables the granular tracing of the changes to the model of the solution. These changes reflect the co-constitutive coupling of thoughts and objects, or object-thought mutualities. The dynamic changes in these objects unveil the origin of new ideas.
