Ways to Be Creative
I am compiling a list of the different ways I can think of to be creative. Here’s what I’ve come up with:
1. Be 100% New
In the description of their history, El Bulli, one of the highest-rated restaurants in the world, quotes French chef Jacques Maximin who said “Creativity means not copying“.
Everything is a Remix is an excellent video series on the importance of derivative works and recombinations in the creative process.
3. Copy, But Modify
This is how evolution works.
4. Copy Perfectly
Adam Savage from Mythbusters gave a great talk on making a copy of the statuette from The Maltese Falcon and it shows how much creativity there is in trying to produce a specific, well-established end goal.
