Janet Echelman: Taking imagination seriously | Video on TED.com

Janet Echelman found her true voice as an artist when her paints went missing -- which forced her to look to an unorthodox new art material. Now she makes billowing, flowing, building-sized sculpture with a surprisingly geeky edge.

Marta Ockuly's insight:

This is a wonderful TED talk about imagining in the face of challenges and rejections. Very inspiring!

Anger and creativity

Anger and creativity | Creative Potential Institute | Scoop.it

Psychologist Stephen A. Diamond, PhD says that most mature artists "realize the relationship between rage and creativity. It is their rage that, when redirected and channeled into their work, gives it the intensity and passion that performing artists such as actors and actresses seek. Al Pacino's, Robert DeNiro's, Jack Nicholson's and Jessica Lange's work are good examples." [Photo: Sister Jude (Jessica Lange) in TV series "American Horror Story."]

Finding Passion, Living Passion « SENG

Finding Passion, Living Passion « SENG | Creative Potential Institute | Scoop.it

By Sheri Plybon. Each week on the television show Shark Tank, several innovators bring their products to the “sharks” to ask for funding or other entrepreneurial assistance. Knowing oneself is key in this situation. It begins with resilience to get this far but then includes confidence to go further and let someone else who is more knowledgeable in business take the idea. We tend to hold our ideas so closely and identify with our inventions, and the key is “knowing” that if I did this before, I can do it again. Innovation is a learned process, but the drive and the passion are inherently personal.

How novel is that? It always fascinates me why so many are walking and constantly talking on a phone. Wouldn't it be nice just to look around and see what the world has to offer, clear your mind, feel refreshed when you finally return to your projects?  Surely your productivity would have to increase and be more inspired. I hope more of us follow your lead and reconnect with all that is right by their side.
