Abstract

Today we live in cultures where digital data and our own material bodies interact in a ever-increasing intensity, especially through the dissemination of mobile communication devices. Our thoughts are broadcasted through the micro blogs and its synchronized feeds, to instantaneously pervade our surrounding social graphs. In such a situation, the cost of self expression continues to lower and creativity tends to become commodity; consequently, the delimitation of authorship for certain forms of expression becomes almost nonsensical. This article aims at shedding light to the future of such creative commodities in our increasingly code dependent cultures; how our definition of creativity can evolve by focusing on the idea of process and inheritance; and initiating a discussion of how to build its corresponding referential system.
