CPSI 2017 KEYNOTE: STEVE STOCKMAN
To consumers, art “things” magically appear. You watch them on your iPhone or have Amazon ship them to you or buy tickets to them. But to its creator, art is not a “thing,” it’s an act – an immersive process, requiring personal risk and exposure at every step. This is why there are more accountants than novelists – it’s scary to commit to your own creative vision. Much easier to prioritize something like making money, shopping or cleaning your office — again. In this preview of the book he’s now struggling to write, Steve Stockman defines the process this way: Art is ripping your guts out and putting them on the table.
You’ll learn:
• Why making art is miserable and painful and why people do it anyway (which is only sometimes because they’re totally unqualified for other work).
• How creating art is related to – but not the same as – the Creative Problem Solving process.
• And why discovering where disaster lurks is the secret to becoming the artist you want to be.
