The concept underlying the research reported in this paper is that of a semi-automatic system with which groups of distributed users interact, primarily by exchanging multimedia data such as short sound recordings, photographs or video clips taken with mobile phones. The generative website is a place where the public can post their own contents such as articles and videos, and then the website generates possible and meaningful sequences of that data by combining the content provided in an interesting and stimulating way. The paper describes the interaction concept, the algorithms for the generative website and an implementation. An evaluation of user experience with the prototype system is also presented. The overall aim of this research is to design and develop methods for interactive generative systems as stimulants to human creativity and it is claimed that this aim is advanced by the research reported. © 2008.
