Creativity Mysteries#1

Fascinating re-broadcast of a Charlie Rose program from last year on the mysteries of creativity and the creative brain. Iconic artists Chuck Close and Richard Serra and neurologist Oliver Sacks discuss their artistic processes. Interestingly, both Sacks and Close are both face blind and yet do not see their disabilities as impediments, but instead as assets. Close believes that limitations of all kinds actually free up his creative process.

CC were rightfully surly because of stage complications that forced them to
shorten their set. Consequently, they unleashed their molten, metal wrath on
an audience that tried to stand its ground in a parking lot, amidst a
swirling, dust storm that threatened to the blow the stage over. It was a
perfect storm of man and nature’s sound and fury. It was “Live and
Dangerous”, to quote Thin Lizzy, and it was bliss.
