After walking around the MoMA today I was wondering where creativity comes from and what drives humans to create. This article just touches on the possible answer and a possible way to rejuvenate creative energy in all of us. Try new things, experiment, and make a mess. You’ll never know what you’ll find.

One thing that sets humans apart from other animals is the intensity of the human drive to create new and different things. While other creatures may come up with novel solutions to solve problems, humans are unique in actively going out to create problems solely for the pleasure of solving them!
