In a few recent gallery visits, artists have drawn a stark contrast in the creative processes they follow. Some have a clear vision of what they want to achieve and work towards it. Others work through iterative steps to let an outcome present itself. The latter group may be more open to exploration along the way, but they are still bounded by the choices they make – medium, scope and scale of the effort, time to deliver, available resources. We limit our range of possible outcomes by enforcing boundaries. This can be positive or negative. If set intentionally, your boundaries can increase the likelihood of meeting your objectives. If ignored, daily routines can incrementally build boundaries around you. Which boundaries should be added, altered or eliminated in your design path?
