Over the past two decades, scientific evidence findings have converged to suggest a pivotal role of unconscious perceptual information processing on creative problem solving (Bechara et al. 1994, 1997; Gao Y and Zhang H 2014) raising the theoretical possibility that more than logical scrutinity is demanded to intelligent behavior. In line with this possibility, our team addresses experimentally the hypothesis that aesthetical and affective-emotional transits would lead to cognitive gain. To test it in a controlled way, we have built a platform of artgames – entitled F!T (Multi Media Fusion 2). Basically, game goals are insinuated as fit, challenging player-controlled incursions throughout a series of phases. Game versions in this platform are experienced as distinct aesthetical and affective charges. Our goal is to share with participants the essence of an art(hard)sci problematization, and how it is achievable from the perspective of computational arts.
