Why did you get involved in this project?
The opportunity to be creative! The surrealist factor allowed me to be feel less restricted and judgmental. I thought maybe no one would know my contribution and that was almost more powerful.
Did the one week turn-around for the work help or hinder your creativity?
HELP! It’s covid! If there was more time I would procrastinate! I also would have judged my work more.. so the less time the better and more creative.
How did you feel about working on a project where you didn’t know who you were collaborating with?
I really liked not knowing who was involved or how it would work. Freed up my thinking on traditionally how this is done! Plus bonus- no videoconference calls!
Has being involved in the project changed your thoughts on creativity?
Yes, I think I think that less time, more free thought was great. I also learnt that allowing things to not make sense and be messy is great. I’m a person who loves to give notes and context and not being able to was, well, epic for me to learn.
