Week 2: History of Creativity

History of Creativity

Creativity in a way is all around us, everything from the food we eat to the beds we sleep in. Objects are created in a way to be visually interesting to attract people to like them, it is endless and can never die.Some people are more creative than others, some people struggle to think of new ideas and people simple amazed us with the latest trend. The brain is spilt into two parts, one side being logic (Left) and the other side creative (right) as you can see in the image below (1).

I can happily say i use the right side of my brain more since my English,science and maths is terrible. I love art, music, photography and having a big imagination, always thinking of new ideas for my photography. I look at the world as a big space of inspiration anything from the smallest connection can motivate to create some unique, different colour grading techniques in Adobe Photoshop or take a photograph from a different perspective using numerous settings on my canon 5D MKII Canon. It’s sometimes hard for my to express my creative as i usually use my photographs to do all the talking to fill my satisfaction. Creativity also makes you unique, a individual whom standout among the rest from others. For people to look up to in times of being lost.

In the lecture Glen Spoors to the room by storm showing us different era’s of creativity from cave painting to day’s post-industrial age. This was actually really interesting as i assumed it was going to be another boring lecture. I was really found of the Classical Imagination when the Egyptians produced the same representation of the human body for 3000 years, Glen stated that researchers found templates of the body in the walls of some pyramids before the image was complete. This shows that templates was used back in that era to create a human figure, fashion designers still use them this day to aid them sketching their creative designs.
