Conversation On Creativity

Welcome back to Season 3 where we are having conversations about Art Terms and ideas. This episode we take on creativity. The definition and quotes are below. 

Creativity as defined by Merriam Webster

Marked by the ability or power to create, given to creating, having the quality of something created rather than imitated, imaginative, managed so as to get around legal or conventional limits, deceptively arranged so as to conceal or defraud.

We have 3 quotes for this episode 1. Rumi says “Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.” 2. Julian F Fleron says “The creative adult is the child who has survived.” 3. And lastly Albert Einstein says “Creativity is intelligence having fun.”

Rumi was a 13th Century Persian Poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian and Sufi mystic. Julian Fleron is a Professor of mathematics at Westfield State College. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc², which has been dubbed “the world’s most famous equation”. He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics “for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect”, a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.



Our first conversation is on creativity. We sit down with Len James in person and discuss his thoughts on creativity and how he uses it with his family and students.
