Creativity Reflection

Improved Essays
Being a “creative” individual has an extensively diverse amount of interpretations of the general public, and arguably being so broad a term that it is almost fundamentally undefinable. During the past semester I have learned that for a product to be truly creative require an individual to go through the creative process in order to extract the finest product. Creativity is not some fleeting means of inspiration, or a trait that some people innately have and others lack. Instead, it means enduring an amassment of mental turmoil in order to churn out a unique product to the creator, and even potentially leading to the development of a socially accepted and useful product. The project I created for this final paper is an interactive sculpture …show more content…
(Sawyer 65). My mastery in the domain of dance, although helpful in terms of giving me a creative outlet for means of expression, also lends itself to the fact whenever I create with it, I do not feel as though I am challenged as deeply or in the same way as I was throughout the process of creating this particular sculpture. Consequently, the process of creating this product challenged me in a basic way of construction of the item because I am not a master of visual art forms like sculpture, and also in that it made me traverse alternative creative pathways in my brain in order to create something that was different from my usual creative domain. I proved to myself through the creation of this sculpture, that I have proficiency in more than just the domain of dance, and that even though it was a risky option for me to create something outside of my area of highest aptitude, I succeeded. Another reason this project demonstrates a strength of mine in creating a tangible metaphor for the confusion and conflicting ideas that cover this campus. Similarly, the concepts tied together in this project feature my capacity to handle ambiguity. Despite the fact that each piece of this sculpture has a meaning, nothing automatically defines itself, which allows the viewer to draw a lot of different conclusions relating to various types of symbolism. My lack of courage in my convictions shows through in that I asked several different people in my class, and otherwise about their thoughts on this idea because I was worried that it was too peculiar or unconvential. I lacked

    I would not consider myself to have two left feet, but I do move awkwardly sometimes throughout the space because my footing is off. From that awkward movement in my body, I believe prevents me from looking at myself in the mirror. I rarely look at myself intentionally in the mirror while dancing. I think that is because I do not want to see myself moving so awkwardly when I am trying hard to perform a movement. Although, I do know that looking at the mirror can benefit me because I can then correct my awkward movement and potentially display the movement I want so I can actually add in my own personal flare and take risks.…

    When talented employees leave, one does not realize that what goes away is not just the person itself but one’s great ideas and exceptional work ethic. Although Alliance takes countless opportunities to communicate its vision. mission, and values in the workplace, it is actually very costly having to introduce and familiarize new employees with these concepts and get them up to speed in working towards the company goals. By introducing a variety of incentives attached to different levels of achievement, not only does it serve as form of feedback to employees but employees will feel that their contribution matters. Incentives do not necessarily have to be in the form of compensation.…

    Throughout my experiences, I have seen that a student showing an interest in knowledge is the most impressive quality to a mentor or peer. Drive and determination on both sides will help develop any artistic relationship into a stronger and more beneficial one. The initiative to learn a new skill cannot simply come from finding an opportunity; initiative must come from within the individual (“Mikhail”). Far too many people in this world are scared to fail. The irony is fear leads to failure…failure in overcoming fear to accomplish a great feat.…

    Between my love for history and respect for the arts, I wanted to challenge my artistic self into examining an under-recognized work of art and suggest its creative elements that are often overlooked. In order to identify and mimic the creative prospects of the work that elicit detail, I had to admire certain elements and suspect their relevance to the piece, where only then I could interpret them and advance my own creation from the techniques that I observed. While we study many beautiful pieces of art throughout the entirety of this semester, between the originality, economic struggles, and over complications that are exhibited within this work, I believe this work is the most advanced of which we saw, considering the region from whence it…

    It is also necessary to examine issues which concern creativity in detail. According to Jervis (p.26, 1998) “creativity is the lifeblood of any successful enterprise but, as anyone in business knows, creativity is hard to manage, difficult to encourage and almost impossible to define.” Basically, it is impossible to define this term, however it is likely to be approximately described. There is a chance that some experiments, surveys, empirical knowledge and someone’s personal experience would make the understanding of creativity clearer and give more background about…

    Dance Studio Analysis

    Loud beats, shouts and footsteps fill my ears, and an awful stench of sweat makes it’s way into my nose, but this dance studio is a special place nonetheless. It may seem hectic and rowdy to some people, but not to me. An environment I entered so cautiously at first started to become natural and safe. I had never thought I would spend so much time in this place doing something I loved. I would not forget how the first day went.…

    Unlike Mathematics which unifies through its standard formulas and proven theorems, Arts unify through their subjectivity. Because of the subjective nature of Art, I believe that this area of knowledge requires minimal proof being only: receiving a reaction (even if that is no reaction at all) and the possibility of being analyzed by the artist and others for a deeper, meaningful concept. However, problems within my argument arise in genres like abstract art where the subjective nature may lead to believe that many pieces are not Art at all. This problem also raises the questions of what is Art, and can we have a standard definition for this area of knowledge? I personally believe that because of the immense role personal knowledge plays that we can never truly have one standardized definition of Art, and there are going to be instances where, because minimal proof is needed, certain pieces will never be considered shared knowledge within society because of the subjectivity of the area of…

    Most importantly, it is the intangible skillsets that I have developed that will prove to be even more important than the direct knowledge and skills that I have obtained in the program. Prior to the MBA program, I did not have the opportunity to work with such a diverse group of individuals and when grouped with these individuals, it did not only force me to become more adaptable. For example, during our group’s brainstorming session, there were multiple occasions in which the group engaged in debates due to conflicting ideas and suggestions. However, the ability to adapt and compromise led to the most ideal decision in a timely and effective manner. Another intangible skillset that this project allowed me to put into perspective is the development of my interpersonal skills.…

    I am a clear example of what a lack of guidance from older students and professors can cause. This program caused me to change my mind about my life goals and change my major to Digital Information Design. Therefore, my personal experience plays a big factor in my motivation to get this issue solved. Second, I am very interested to see how my opinions will be used in consideration when dealing with this problem. It seems that people often complain about the lack of support and guidance, but nothing ever changes.…
