Semantic Noodling and Meaning Machines

A session at UXLx - User Experience Lisbon 2016

Thursday 26th May, 2016

9:45am to 10:20am (LMT)

Christopher Noessel joins us to ask the question, "How do you think new things?" Seemingly simple, the answer takes us through domains as disparate as divination and entertainment, but lands us squarely in the creative process. From techniques like poetics to force-fit grids to Oulipan writing to Design as Semiosis, all share a common deep structure that he's named "Semantic Noodling" and the systems that use it "Meaning Machines."
