Maternal spark at Monday's Muse offers the following qoute and a question;
‘Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences than other people.’
— Steve Jobs
The question does creativity have anything to do with experience
I have to disagree and say yes I believe full heartly that experience has alot to do with creativity. Yes we are born with it in some wasy we are all born with what I would call natural talents. Perhaps you are an artist or can play music without being taught however does experience not make the creative juices flow more.
If one travels or lives through a struggle are they not inspired to do something perhaps more creative than they had ever done before? It is my opinion that yes creativity has alot to do with experience that one goes through in life.
