“Oh … that’s, um, interesting. So what do you do for real work?”
When a compliment goes from left-handed to lethal.
Non Sequitur Comic Strip by Wiley Mller, 2004/04/17
Creativity is the interplay between the individual, the domain, and the field. The individual does the work in the domain, and the field decides whether something is creative or not. I have written some paragraphs about the field and it’s power and influence, but in this blog entry I’m curious:
What is your field?
Or, to put it in a different way:
What is your creative community?
How did you decide that this field has to power to decide
whether your work is creative or not?
What do you get from them and what do they get from you?
Or don’t you need any other persons but yourself,
i.e., is your field comprised only of yourself?
I’m interested in your answers. You can write a comment in the field at the end of the posting (click on the title of the posting first).
