Abstract : By nature, creativity is an informational process. Any product of art appears as a result of processing by the artist (in his own consciousness) of some defined information, proceeding to him from the outside world (personal observations, reading, stories of other persons, and so forth). This book is one of the first attempts to expand to an analysis of the nature of artistic creativity the principles of cybernetics, a science concerning communications, connections and control in different complicated systems (including also in the human organism). In it are considered (in reference to the nature of artistic creativity) such ideas of cybernetics as feedback, signal, and information. Author is making an attempt to uncover the creative process in his manifold communications and mediations from the point of view of the feedback principle.
