Creativity leads to intersections in art and science
Kinjal encourages us to foster our inborn creativity and constantly make connections and innovations.
Creativity is the action of bringing original and valuable ideas into the world. Such fresh ideas might arise through the creation of connections between diverse areas of interests, or through the work of others. Creativity is not limited to the arts; anyone can be creative with regard to scientific research, culinary experiments, historical interpretations, and more. The ability to transcend
traditional ideas, rules, and patterns, and to make meaningful ideas is the embodiment of a creative person.
"A mind that is worried about the outcome can never be creative."
Creativity is not an individual talent or an ability; it is a skill, an inborn strength, and it needs to be sharpened regularly to have value. Creativity has become so prevalent that art and science are now merging to produce fascinating projects and new approaches to thinking. Artificial intelligence is producing art, microscopes are using origami methods, and fashion design is using microorganisms. Ultimately, there seems to be no conclusion to the ways in which art and science are colliding.
Consider Apple, one of the most successful companies, in which Steve Jobs blended advanced
technology and design principles to create some of the most innovative gadgets ever known to mankind.
In fact, you can never get rid of such creativity. For example, imagine you're in a computer design class. When you want to relax after an especially demanding day in which you had to put the creative side of your brain to work, you daydream on the couch. About what? You dream about images and scenarios stemming from your imagination. Creativity will never cease to exist. It's time to foster this inborn trait, which is becoming very important in an interdisciplinary world.
Creativity is always on tap, waiting for you to use it mindfully. As Edward de Bono, passionate about teaching the process of thinking, said, "one very important aspect of motivation is the willingness to stop and look at things no one bothered to look at. The simple process of focusing on things that are normally taken for granted is a powerful source of creativity."
However, only someone with a brave mentality can be creative. A mind that is worried about the outcome can never be creative. Be brave, and start applying a creative lens to everything you do, even science.
