Studying Creativity

The study of creativity is plagued by a lack of clear metrics to indicate its presence in any given behavior. By constraining the domain of subjects’ influence, the Leaps project aims to classify behavioral styles in the exploration of shape space. Using a visual interface deployed in a web browser, subjects are given a limited number of blocks which they can move one at a time. They are further limited to only move blocks from places that will not break the shape into more than one piece.
