Tracking creative creatures: an interdisciplinary investigation into the creative process – project description
“Tracking creative creatures” is an interdisciplinary exploration which originated out of a need for research possibilities within the creative disciplines, specifically visual arts and creative writing. The graphic works which formed the core of the project, and which served as creative stimuli for the various artists, originated in the imagination of a five year-old boy and were subsequently illustrated by his artist father. The project entails various components, including a flagship project with invited artists, a teaching subproject and a community sub-project, which were showcased at the Aardklop National Arts Festival, 2007. This article provides an overview of the project as a whole and the organic nature in which it evolved. The discussion includes the following aspects: context, conceptualisation, approach, methods, documentation, support structures, description of the various sub-projects, and preliminary results and appraisal. The complex nature of the projects is further communicated by means of illustrations.
