Perception - ability to see relevant differences
An artist puts their whole self into their work.
- Physical (safe)
- Intellectual (see what your supposed to see, mental flexibility)
- Environmental (fear of failing)
Taboos - mostly cultural. Societal norms affect the way artists think. Examples: Rules about where art should be, playfulness is for children, problems are serious, humor is out the question.
Understand the Problem (sub-problem/rules)
- devise a plan
- put to other uses
