Running with the portrait idea for my creative project I thought a brief five question questionnaire about creativity would add a level of intimacy to the project.
After throwing ideas around with Franco for a bit we were able to get a ‘flow’ going. Bouncing ideas off each other, building on some, acknowledging others and finally refining it to the questionnaire. The whole process lasted about five minutes. The time it took to walk from class to the cafe for Franco‘s regular coffee fix.
I love how the creative process is rarely linear. I thrive in the chaos of refining ideas from a swirling mess of information. I actually had an interesting conversation about this last night. The messy vs neat debate. I represented messy and Peter represented neat. He liked everything structured so it could be put away, out of sight and easy to find. I on the other hand liked everything out, around me and within sight. I like to feel connected to everything at all times. This applies to the physical world as well as my inner thoughts. Might have the neat or messy question on the questionnaire.
The first draft of the questionnaire.
What do you consider creative?
Rate your level of creativity out of 10
Are you messy or tidy?
More questions to come. Please feel free to leave your responses or suggestions for questions.

Following on from my alter egos post I had another idea for my creative project.
Using the concept of creating a mirror image of one side of the face to create a whole in the form of a portrait. I could use it as a metaphor for understanding ones creative self. They say the right side of the brain is your creative side. So with this in mind I could create a series of portraits only using the subjects right side. This would create a visual representation of their creative self.

In a unit that has more in common with therapy than a traditional university unit I finally came face to face with my alter egos. Turns out they are just like me and have their own hopes, dreams and fears. I will also like to mention how awesomely cool they were in letting me take a couple pictures to share on this blog!
Keep it real guys…just remember I’m the boss and we’ll avoid having to share a straight jacket!
