Challenge Gallery 39: Invisible

While searching for something totally unrelated, I came across this interview with Rainn Wilson posted on BigThink.com. He’s speaking here about creativity in general, and its effect on every single person. Whether you call yourself an artist or not, you are still using creativity in some capacity in your life.

Rainn Wilson: Creativity is absolutely for everyone. I firmly believe this. I think if you’re the driest accountant with the plastic pocket pen protector it’s in how you interact with the world. There is artistry in everything that we do and there is expression in everything that we do and you see that in the game of chess as you… I used to play a lot of chess and competitive chess and study chess and as you get to the grandmasters and learn their styles when you start copying their games like the way they express themselves through… The way Kasparov or Bobby Fischer expresses themselves through a game of chess is it’s astonishing. You can show a chess master one of their games and they’ll say “Yeah, that is done by that player.”

So it doesn’t matter. It’s again, about that yearning to transcend. There is a surrender to a power greater than one’s self as every artist or scientist or thinker talks about a certain point when it’s no longer like their brain. It’s like the ideas are like streaming through them and that can happen with anyone. If you’re a janitor you can do it through your work or on the side or how you are with people, but this is the mission of Soul Pancake is to show that everyone is an artist. Everyone is creative in their own way and that that creativity is a great thing. It’s a human thing and it needs to be nurtured and it can help us go down life’s path and help us to become deeper, richer, more satisfied human beings.

I agree that everyone is creative in their own way. “Artists” don’t have a monopoly on the creative process.

I’m thankful for the folks who choose to express their creativity here.

Before we get to our challenge gallery, the prompt for next week is, “Engage.” Make of it what you will.
