This paper describes generate and explore as a paradigm for models of computational creativity. It describes the difference between search within a conceptual space and exploration in changing conceptual spaces. Three types of exploration are described and existing examples of them are presented. It describes generate and explore as a potential basis for generating utility, novelty and surprise in models of computational creativity. The paper identifies the role of interpretation in creative systems and ways that it can lead to exploration.
