The State of Creativity

The Future of 3D Printing, 4D Printing and Augmented Reality

James Griffin

Creativity has been of central importance to the development of the modern State, and yet creativity is something that has become increasingly side-lined. This has been particularly apparent with the development of new machinic technologies, such as 3D printing. This monograph argues that inner creativity, combined with the zone of discourse, has been endangered by the rise of administrative regulation. Griffin investigates how the failure to incorporate creativity into that administrative regulation is adversely impacting the regulation of technologies such as 3D printing. The State of Creativity, proposes reforms to ensure that the regulation does take creativity into account.

Chapter 8: An augmented reality (2) - reform: the proposed licensing system

James Griffin


The monograph has, so far, argued that the necessity of creativity is being imperilled within the modern-day State, and that this in turn endangers the development of technologies such as 3D printing. Creativity has been critical to the development of the State, and this has relied upon the expression of the inner creativity of individuals. It is imperative that the zone of discourse is preserved, and not threatened by the overgrowth of an administrative zone. It was also argued that the flow of reproduction is equally important for the existence of creativity. This maintains the rationality of the State. To this end, the previous chapter outlined how economic reasoning has come to mask and hide the importance of creativity, and it proposed a creativity fund to help encourage access to existing creative works. This chapter takes the proposals further, to clearly set out the proposed systems.
