The investigation of creativity was conducted at Iaspis, a Swedish stately residency program. This context is important for some parts of the piece, where as the more general investigation of what creativity is, has been and could be is not tied to any specific time or place, although my interest in these questions stem from the realisation that:
- the creative process is a term which is loaded with myths and ideas about what can be achieved by the human mind,
- it is projected on artists,
- artists in Sweden finance their work to a large extent through stately grants and institutions, and Konstnärsnämnden (the Governmental agency where the Iaspis residencies have their studios) is the biggest sponsor of individual artists in Sweden.
This work contains the following sixteen texts, a separation installation and three objects.
