Subject: Norway calling: Info wanted about creativity!

>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
>Snowcapped and grateful regards from Gine,
