Art Jones's curator insight, November 8, 2014 9:38 AM
Excerpt:Giving your creative brain space

"One of my favorite talks about creativity, which I tend to reference a lot, is this one by John Cleese about the tortoise brain. Cleese explains how his own experience with comedy writing taught him how much of our creative thinking comes from our subconscious—what he calls the tortoise brain.

The tortoise brain is pretty nervous, and has to be coaxed out of its shell. The best way of doing this, according to Cleese, is to create an environment that’s safe for the tortoise. In terms of creative thinking, that means giving yourself time and space. A separate space where your creative work happens, and time to relax and let your tortoise brain do the work."
