This paper asserts that, visual and meta-cognitive stimuli constructed from multiple experiences and multiple modalities in ‘blended spaces’ (i.e. internal or external), are potential stimuli in ideation, iterative, and creative conceptual design engineering processes. These multiplicities in human capabilities are intertwined, interlinked, and/or coupled with the cognitive memory patterns from mental representations (i.e. abstractions) of productive thought. Ideas are inherently ambiguous and/or spatial representations that become tangible- and visual transformations through intention, interaction and externalization.
