Methods of Sustaining Creativity in The Same Place

10 May 2014

[Old draft. Publishing anyway. Needs more work. Update 9/12/15: MIT Media Lab has a Changing Places research group which is based on this idea]

Non-physical — media.

Physical and alone. Another technique to extend hypomania, and creativity, is to continually create new experiences. One way is to change work places, to change external stimuli. A new park, cafe, shared workspace, street, protest, train, wherever.

Physical and social. A better method is to create new social experiences. Cook dinner for friends, have picnic at a park, play a game, talk, discuss, do something with other people.

Constant creativity seems to almost require constant consumption.
