imaginement ® * is a systems thinking reset for appreciative change and innovation. Cultivating the imagination enhances creative thinking not only for anticipating needs but also actualizing potentialities. For example, attentional looking at art can trigger processes of seeing the world from different angles. Such an arts-based approach can also have applications in business and education such as science learning (STEM), that enhanced by art (STEAM) can move individuals beyond literal seeing to perceiving patterns that spark ideation and innovation.
Ren's imaginement assessment tool grew out of analyses of college art history student first-reports written over three decades on an art object in the museum.
