Highlights from TEDxJISSalon: The Artist Inside

Is it possible to be uncreative? How can we use the element of randomness to be original? What are you good at? What did you like to do when you were young?  Is what you see in a photograph the same as what the photographer wanted you to see? How does an artist take a simple idea and make it a beautiful piece of art?

These were just some of the questions that the participants at TEDxJISSalon: The Artist Inside discussed, doodled, and even danced their way through. Easily the most active of our salons so far, our presenters and performers had all the attendees actively exploring what the creative process is about.
