(on) creativity

The other day I came across the article Top artists reveal how to find creative inspiration in the UK edition of The Guardian. A lot of good advice, these are my favorites at the moment:

  • Don’t wait for a good idea to come to you. Start by realising an average idea – no one has to see it. If I hadn’t made the works I’m ashamed of, the ones I’m proud of wouldn’t exist. (Polly Morgan, artist)
  • Write backwards. Start from the feeling you want the audience to have at the end and then ask “How might that happen?” continually, until you have a beginning. (Lucy Prebble, playwright)
  • It doesn’t always have to make sense. (Susan Philipsz, artist)

Wishing you a happy, healthy and a creative New Year!
