To Tell Me about the Creative You

I am asking you to tell me about how you see yourself creatively, about what tools you use to express yourself, what your impressions are about the different modes of expression available, whether it be a camera, a pen, an instrument, a pattern or a menu. I would also appreciate you adding a link to an example of your work.  If it is a menu for an exotic meal, why not. If it is music or lyrics or photos or films or a short story, it is all good!

Perhaps you are a Fashion Blogger wishing to contribute some articles to BKBlog.  If so, we will link back to your blog in exchange of your magnificent articles.

Looking forward to your input…

  • The games of mind do not respect a creative side..

  • …woaw… …thas is such a question…!

    I explain: I am so much used to almost sucking out the latests editorial and advertising shootings off the internet and magazines, that now that I come to think about the creative me, I wonder whether I have fallen into an habit, like a trainspotter, rather than having found a way to feed the creative me, for him to digest what’s the contemporary message is at present, so to relate to and with it, saying something, if there is the need for it.

    Is all that browsing just an hitch? An homemade brainwashing theraphy meant to boost a creative me that struggles in dealing with performance anxiety and the fear of confrontation?

    Honest answer? Could be. In a small percentage though, I suppose. All in all, it remains an updating system. Or it does, so to answer your question, as long as the creative me is on the doorway, selecting, judging, evaluating, appreachiating or getting dead bored with what’s passing by, as the music goes on the background.

    The creative me is that: the owner, barman, DJ, lapdancer, PR, car parking attendant, the bouncer and client of an exclusive club where we all dance in the name of that romantic beauty that cunningly mixed with a hint of glamour and fetish savour make your jaws drop on a regular basis as all you can whisper is: che bella! as if you were talking to your 2 days old daughter, sleeping in her innocent dimension, that is filled with the real luxury everybody is craving nowadays: cultural content.

    Dress code: smart to drop dead gorgeous. But we do not pull back on chill and relaxed, fire lightned, beach evenings with plenty of spot on lounge music that leaves room, from time to time, to some good old 100% reggae, just to remember those days in which we all were younger and were surfing around the world, gliding on the beauty that nature unfolds, as it shapes what we call women, but we frame in pictures that we hope will manage to say something to the world, as they twitter with it…

    Free entry. Just need to have the right frame of mind, that’s all.

    You coming in? 🙂

    Photography, music, filmmaking, and soon, fashion design. Creativity is a primary value for me, its process a near obsession. I continually re-examine creativity as an analytical concept (one of my favorite geeky books is _The Handbook of Creativity_, by Robert Sternberg; _Sparks of Genius: The 13 Thinking Tools of the World’s Most Creative People_ is essential reading for the explorer of creativity), and pay close attention to the workings of consciousness with the hope of systematizing the conditions of creativity. Why can’t I be creative all the time? -a central problem of mind. Examining creativity in the context of self has allowed me, I’m certain of it, to improve my creative capacity. How much is anyone’s creativity improvable? -An unanswered question in psychology.

    How are these expressions of creativity different or similar? Each can teach lessons that transfer to the others.

    Very curious to read more about what you have to say on the subject!
