Abstract

The term autopoiesis, (meaning ‘self’) and ‘poiesis’ (mean- ing ‘creation, production’) defines a system capable of repro- ducing and maintaining itself. The term was introduced by the theoretical biologists, Humberto Maturana and Francisco Varela, in 1972 to define the self-maintaining chemistry of living cells. The term has subsequently also been applied to the fields of systems theory and sociology. In this paper we apply this model to characterise creativity in art practise.
