Construction And Creativity

Construction is an incredibly complex process. Just the act of sketching out the project is no easy task. The project must comply to the regulations. The skilled workers must make unerring use of the materials and space and constraints and deadlines and oversights. To make matters more complex, all the complexity of a construction site is built upon all the complexity of building the tools to construct the building.

Creativity is an incredibly complex process. Just the act of sketching out what you’re going to create is no easy task. The project must comply to your standards of quality –  the hard to ignore tendency to compare what you’re creating to what’s been created before. It’s a real challenge to get a solid grip on the psychic tools available when developing an idea. To keep the rush of excitement at bay, to look at the project dispassionately, to know what environment works best for your thinking, to know exactly what to be thinking about, to know exactly how to think about the idea, to know how to see it in it’s proper light, to be willing to dismantle the idea, to put it to the test of rejection and all the ways that it might not work.
