This flash video of an hour-long discussion on creativity might be worthwhile for you to watch if you are interested in any of the following:
- the origins and processes of creativity
- modern art and modern artists
- learning how learning disabilities and/or cognitive limitations can elicit creativity
Be advised that it starts off slow, especially before they get to the panel. It really does pick up, though. You can tease out some cognitive function discussion from what they describe, although no one on the panel uses the terms. I hadn't heard so much about face blindness before this, its rather fascinating.
I hope its available for everyone to view.
Simply click on Richard Serra's face to start the video.
I really liked Chuck Close talking about not waiting around for inspiration and also the creative power of limitation, which is related to his own disabilities, but also in a kind of problem-forming sort of way.
