What is the nature of creativity? Is creativity an attribute, or is it a state of being? What ist the impetus for creative risk and exploration? Is it a problem solving or aesthetic expression? And can a hindrance eventually become the unique signature of one’s creativity? Perhaps being forced to express oneself in a certain way rather than choosing to do so is, in the end, the thing that metamorphoses creativity into artistry.
