THE CREATIVES KILLED CREATIVITY BY JONATHAN BABA
If you’re someone like myself, the idea of being creative is exceedingly daunting. The creative world has no place for analysis, numbers, plans, or charts. The creative world has been held captive by the very people who brought it to the forefront of business and entertainment. Eccentricity and big ideas have a death grip on outside the box thinking. To most, including myself, creativity has just become a synonym for artistry.
But that’s not what creativity is, at all. To each of us, creativity is a different mindset, and different form of experimentation, a different answer. My creative journey through this class has not been one of self-improvement but rather of self-discovery. Discovery that I have the potential to be creative in my own way. Our creative society has a fascination with the thinkers and rarely with the doers. That’s not to say that the thinkers shouldn’t have their place in the public conciseness. But every Steve Jobs needs a Steve Wozniak. And the sooner we embrace all forms of creativity, like we have over this semester, the sooner a greater quantity of ideas can be discovered and embraced.
