    A context visualiser: the generative website project



    This paper presents a prototype generative system that visualises possible sequences of information, often called scenarios, narratives, stories, or contexts, out of existing information so that (1) information designers and audiences of information can explore and discover possible contexts that otherwise could be missed; and (2) the generated information artefacts can stimulate creative thinking. The generated sequences are expected to work as : (1) final products that a user (audience) can enjoy; and (2) draft materials that a user (information designer) can modify.
