Creativity does not happen in a void, and it isn’t just a means to an end. The outcome of your creative pieces should spark a conversation, ignite purpose in others, or influence the emotions of anyone who comes in contact with them.
Edgar Degas quotes, “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see”. Additionally, creative pieces should be felt rather than just observed. On this episode of Creative Gist, five creatives share their thoughts on whether they view themselves through the lenses of their creative works and if their creative pieces portray their personalities to their audience.

Closing with the quote by Thomas Merton, which says, “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time”, do you think reflecting and losing a part of yourself to your creative piece also helps you find yourself?
And do you think others can see the part of you that is embedded in your creative pieces? Kindly share your thoughts below.
