artifact description
This write-up is describing the process of preparing a concept for an interview book about natural creative process. Three persons working creatively on a regular basis is interviewed and a chapter of the future book is produced based on one of them. All three interviews are then used to discuss the relationship between natural creativity (creativity done without any tools or techniques) and applied creativity. 5 concepts are identified in natural creativity that could be of potential use in the applied world. The concepts are: (1) Incubation; (2) Flow; (3) Motivation; (4) Attitudes; and (5) Inspiration. Ways of using these concepts in applied creativity are suggested. A sketch for a new CPS model that is possibly more beneficial to use in the art world is presented. The model is called CPS: The Q Model.
