“creativity is based on the human capacity to be astonished, and as such, to address assumptions and outstrip projected outcome. we are surrounded by images and things that are increasingly subservient to quick effects and short-term economics. our lives are marked by a fixation on efficiently achieving results. but to achieve results in an efficient way the outcome has to be fixed and astonishment has to be oppressed. as a result, we only harvest what we crave for, often much less.”
