Creativity seems to be useful in any field of life. In arts, science, business, household… New ways of thinking that express ingenious solving of problems is appreciated because it is profitable. In arts conceptual skilfulness is considered to be creative. Who else than artists could need creativity, designers or architects? How is it expressed? This is the aim of the next issue of the IO.
Here are some suggestions for starting points. New ideas about the meaning of the word creativity are, of course, welcome and expected.
New ways of thinking.
Ability to solve problems is juxtaposed with creativity. But is creativity only ability to find old ideas and make them look like new ones?
Romantic idea of creativity: about great artists expressing their ideas with technical excellence.
We are waiting for articles of 2000-4000 words before the end of December.
The previous issues of the IO are found on the website. The first is about environmental art and the second about the aesthetics of moving or travelling.
