Mind Map

To complement my thoughts on paper, here are some questions I have extrapolated that might help me direct my research:

  • What is creativity/how may it be defined?
  • What is an idea?
  • What is inspiration?
How do we make the most of our creative dispositions? Consider a study of methods, exercises and techniques (and the theories behind them).
  • What does it mean to be innovative in the fashion industry... and who are the innovators?
  • What is the distinction between innovation and creativity?)
  • How important is creativity to well being and social progression?

Quotes about Creativity... some food for thought

“The creative person is both more primitive and more cultivated, more destructive, a lot madder and a lot saner, than the average person.”

- Frank Barron

“Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity.”

- Charles Mingus

"Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You must simply do things."
- Ray Bradbury

“Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction.”

- Pablo Picasso
