EpilogueCreative to whom, and on what basis?
The role of perspective
This epilogue considers creativity from three different perspectives: that of the producer of the expression, of the person paying attention to the expression (the attender) in the same context, and of any attender from a different time and place than that in which the expression was produced. These perspectives are considered in face-to-face interaction and contrasted with mediated interaction. Whether an expression is perceived as creative or not from one of these perspectives depends on what is in that person’s scope of relevant behaviors. In addition, frame knowledge is considered in relation to viewing expressions as creative or not. Examples from the chapters in this volume illustrate how these various factors play out in relation to each other.
