Abstract

The paper tries to address the relationship between creativity and technology, having as a basis the idea that implementing cross disciplinarily approaches has a great potential in generating innovation. The recurring theme of the paper revolves around identifying the catalysts of disruptive ideas hence supporting the need of creative thinkers in our society as opposed to hyper specialization of knowledge. We look at the current educational system, analyze different technologies and their impact as well as the influence of technology upon art. Finally, through the NEO-David light art installation case study, we hope to find evidence in supporting the importance of creativity and cross-disciplinary thinking.
