Creativity and wisdom



Listen to…

  • We’ve listed Rick Rubin in the reading list before, and we’ll probably list him again. This time, we are focusing on Rubin’s social media voice clips rich with insights. While primarily known for his work in music production, Rubin’s voice clip advice reflects a deep understanding that true creativity cannot be rushed or forced. This patience and trust in the process are key aspects of his approach to work.


How do we navigate and manage industry/market expectations?


Look at…

  • “Be loose” she says; Laurie Anderson, a renowned performance artist and musician, in an interview 'Advice to the Young', shares earnest and wise advice to the next generation of artists. Anderson’s approach to art and life emphasizes continual learning and intellectual curiosity. She encourages young artists to explore and seek out knowledge in various forms while emphasizing the need for artists to be authentic and to create work that is true to themselves rather than conforming to external expectations.


How do we maintain authenticity?


Think about…

  • “I hate poetry, the officer says”... Solmaz Sharif is a poet whose work seems to examine the language of war, surveillance, and politics. Full poem; He, Too. You might find yourself questioning the narratives that have shaped our understanding of freedom and production.

Products and services

  • Intellectualizing; Body, Movement, Language: AI Sketches with Bill T. Jones"  is an innovative, critical, and interdisciplinary approach to exploring the integration of AI in dance made by Google Creative Labs. However, the same attributes that drive this deep exploration—the pursuit of knowledge, critical analysis, and mentorship—also introduce elements of confusion and ambiguity.

Participants and in this case the creative team producing the video can struggle to find common ground, leading to miscommunication or unclear objectives. Take a moment to read through the comments; to further illustrate my point…


Why is this story necessary?


Lifestyle and inspiration

  • Carl Sagan was known for his ability to convey complex scientific concepts in an accessible and engaging manner. His books and TV series, such as "Cosmos," reflect the Sage’s ability to educate and inspire through clear and thoughtful language. A particular example we selected to illustrate his ability to explain complex concepts such as God is his use of precise, thoughtful language that aims to educate and provoke deeper understanding. His language emphasizes humility and the recognition of the limits of human understanding, core aspects of the Sage archetype. Sagan often described himself as agnostic, acknowledging the limits of human knowledge. He suggested that while we cannot disprove the existence of God, we also lack sufficient evidence to confirm it.
