Why did you get involved in this project?
I was asked by a friend I respect to contribute during a time when people were feeling creative output was being stifled by the pandemic.
Did the one week turn-around for the work help or hinder your creativity?
It didn’t hinder at all. I think often having a tight timeline actually forces creative flow/output, and demands normal inhibitions to be nullified.
How did you feel about working on a project where you didn’t know who you were collaborating with?
It may not the optimum approach, but in many ways that is exactly how we live our lives. We do things and take actions every day that effect or involve many others in the consequences, without ever really sharing or collaborating on those actions.
Has being involved in the project changed your thoughts on creativity?
