WE ARE ALL CREATORS. WE ARE ALL MAKERS OF THE WORLD.
As the “fundamental human compulsion,” our creative drive is both transformative, and immersive. It is transformative, in that the creative process moves us to new ideas, ingenuity, innovation. It is immersive, in that experiencing what is created is an immersion in the most profound aspects of human experience. Our will to create compels us to bring forth new life, and evolve to higher Being. It is a constant continuation of the universal process that began 13.7 billion years ago.

MUSINGS ON ART + TECHNOLOGY: “Technology is important to Art because it connects creativity with innovation and the spirit of inventiveness. Whether we are using technology to create our art, or to share our art, it challenges artists to explore new realms of aesthetic experience and cultural relevance. But, on the other hand, Art is important to Technology for the most important reason of all. Art gives Technology its humanity. And our humanity is the driving force behind every new technology we design and every product we manufacture. We are all makers. Without creativity, we don’t make anything. If we don’t make anything, we don’t progress.” ~KC
