"The Creative Process"

  • Tom 8y

    So long ago. Back before transformation displaced creation.

    Intriguing, but maybe I would need to attend your lecture on this topic before I could comment... :^) Could you elaborate, perhaps...?

    One of the "in" stances of this postmodern era holds that individual creativity is romantic mythology and that what we really do is more like collective remix. Nothing truly new under the sun. We "passively respond" to all the cultural texts that modern life bombards us with. And the artists and agents among us take this stuff and rearrange it. If we do it well, we shape a recombination that's interesting (a transformation), but not really anything essentially new, just an interesting, different cultural artifact. Sorry to sound like lecturing. I just find it all much more amusing than it sounds.

    Thanks for your thoughts, Tom! Will ponder further, then create something, or transform an old shoe, in response later...

    There's also a certain innocent presumptuousness in listing a set of people and calling them "geniuses," don't you think? Like the last remnants of an academy defining and guarding the canon, and explaining it for the masses. An attitude more modern than post-modern.

    Yeah, I agree with the presumption . . .The book almost sounds like it wants to be a forerunner of the self-help genre.
