In our society we differ between the types of creativity used within an industrial or everyday life context and within an artistic context. Artistic creativity is the result of a creative process.
A room has been given to me here at Iaspis to practice the latter form of creativity. My creative process thus has been given a room in a governmental agency. This must mean that the state has a need for my creativity.
Perhaps I want to satisfy this desire but I am not sure.
To understand this desire of artistic creativity in general I have taken a few steps back to understand how it has been constructed both by consumers and practitioners, and what its function is.
It has been said sometimes that art should not be beneficial, but I don't think anything exists socially that has no function.
