Creativity: Some Examples

I was going to get all wound up here but the fog, the creeks, the valley calls me. Gotta go. Grabbing tripod, rubber boots…

Go here and here. I promise you’ll enjoy these works of playful creative genius. Then if you’re really wound up, read Wikipedia’s piece on the history of the concept of creativity.

More, soon.

  1. Oh, those leaves are just wonderful!! I loved the California leaf – how amazing that his eye caught the coastline of California in the edge of the leaf! There was a comment that said, “yew alder leaf wilderness a loam!” – now that is some creative word play! Thanks for the chuckle, Fred.
