Hello everybody!

I am a graduate student from a university in Norway, studying visual
communication. I am now writing my degree on the subject "creativity".
This thesis is a half-year research, and therefore it will contain
several themes. I will write about the left/right brain and how it works
whithin this area, children and creativity (why do they lose c. as they
get older?), different processes behind creative sollutions, the c.
potential of different materials, concious/un-, subconcious c., creative
techniques, are some groups of humans more creative, eg. lefthanders?,
c. and drugs, culture, people/kids with Downs syndrome and authistic
persons, can c. be taught, what kills creativity, c. and personality,
intellectuality, intelligence, psychology, inspiration, motivation,
environment and so on. Last, but certainly not least (in fact, this will
be the main part), I will interview a dozen persons in different
proffessions (authors, musicians, lawyers, politicians&economists,
photographers, sportsmen, filmmakers, designers+different kinds of
artists, and other persons in "more or less" creative working
situations. The Big Question here is: Does the word " creativity" mean
the same to everybody, or is c. for a politician way different than for
a painter and a football coach? Are there any kind of basic elements
that bind all human beings together in the area of creativity? To go
through with these interviews I need some intelligent questions. I have
some, of course, but could use more. There must be lots of stuff that I
haven`t thought about, so any input on any of the topics above (or other
relevant subjects concerning the world of creativity), and good
questions to my interviewobjects, will be received with great, great
appreciation.
Snowcapped and grateful regards from Gine,
the land of the midnight sun
