What Motivates You Artistically?

If you are a creative person who creates art of some kind, chances are you have asked yourself why it is that you do what you do? Why do you create? Do you enjoy the experience? Do you loath the process but somehow feel that it is urgent that you engage with it? Chances are that it is a combination of all of these kinds of things. Ultimately it is a process, that for reasons you may not fully understand, keeps you moving forward. Going from project to project to project. If this sounds like you, know that you are actually quite lucky. Because not everyone has this innate drive toward discovery. A curiosity about what motivates your artistically?

What do you do if you have a business model that has lots of moving parts?

Cult Movie Actors and Real Life Soap Opera

In 1989 I made a feature length movie that I wrote, directed and acted in. I thought of it as being in a new genre I described at the time as “real life soap opera” in which everyone in a motion picture plays themselves.

This real life soap opera was prior to the official genre designation of “reality show.” Another inspiration involved, was my being a big fan of cult movie actors. Years earlier I had written a couple of different screenplays that integrated a satirical take on this world.

I now realize looking back that I probably wanted on some level to become a cult movie actor. There is something appealing about the lowered barrier of entry that low budget filmmaking offers to the performer.

Media, the Arts and Communications

It wasn’t until I was in my 50’s that I received my graduate degree in Arts Administration from a CUNY, because my intention at the time was to pursue becoming an adjunct professor in media, the arts and communications. In the end however, because of the pandemic and other factors, my career path has shifted back to consulting on digital services and other strategies for those in the arts, business and education. Media arts is a powerful tool for those whose strategy is to wear multiple hats to do what they do, including an artistic hat, businessperson hat and educator hat.

Is it All in Your Head?

Monday, April 15 was the deadline for taxes here in New York City, as well as was the day that I embarked on another philosophical experiment where I began to look at the question “Is it all in your head?” Each day, leading up to today, April 22, I jotted down what was on my mind.

Is it all in your head?

But how do we get a tangible outcome from this approach? If it was truly as easy has having a thought and then acting on it to make it happen, why do so many of us get stuck from the very beginning?

Is the goal to get the art to gush?

A person has a thought about a project they desire to make into something concrete. They wish to take action on that thought. Some would decide that to get a result would next require to become creative about it. To implement opening the tap so that the art starts gushing. For certain individuals this works. Or, another approach is to launch an analytical thinking process. To start analyzing ways to bring about something tangible. Again, for a particular kind of human, this could open the door as well. But what happens if you harness the analytical and creative simultaneously? Some in in New York call this being a NYC analytical creative.

In Our Lives and Work Story is Key

AI Do Good or Human Do Good with Story?

Story is powerful. Humans have told humans stories since ancient times. Gathering around the fire to share tales, either make believe ones about magical things or a sharing of the day’s life and work. We as human beings relate to story because we ourselves are living a story. We share our stories with others on a daily basis. What is AI’s role in telling our stories?

Does AI Do Good with Story or is that Better Left to People?

We as human beings are the ones who live the stories and then share them with others. And although AI is not human, it is trained with data from real live people. So it can arise in the creative process of developing a story: “To be AI or not to be AI, that is the question?”

A Spoonful of Sugar Makes the AI Go Down

AI is not always fun. But then for that matter many things are not always enjoyable when it comes to business. If you are an industry achiever, as in someone who has a successful business and is an expert in the sector of that company, you of course have an advantage. But even though you know your field well and use this knowledge and experience to make your entity soar, you may not always have the greatest time doing it. That is where the spoonful of sugar analogy might prove helpful. You can ask yourself a question. What is the spoonful of sugar I can use to make the task I face more pleasant?

Do You Need AI or Not?

You are an industry achiever. You are an expert in your field. You have a business that is doing well that is in the sector of your expertise. Nice. But do you need AI or not? To put it a bit more focused, what aspects of your business do you really need AI for? One way of looking at it is the human perspective. Consider the outcome you desire. Is it most effective being done by AI? Or is the human touch more powerful? Always involve a human being if you can.

AI is Magic, or is it?

AI is magic, or is it? AI is science of course, but what it can do can seem at times magical. The role that AI plays in the lives of people is undeniably expanding. Sometime consciously on the part of the individual and sometimes not. But regardless, it is impacting all of our lives either directly or indirectly.

AI is You in which Story is Key

One way of looking at the concept of AI is you, is that inevitably AI now plays a role in many of our lives either directly or indirectly. So much of the automation we interact with, often on a daily basis, is AI powered. So AI can seem at times to be large and overpowering. There is still something though that lots of us use, either consciously or unconsciously, that is bigger than AI. It is the fact that story is key in the lives of a large amount of human beings. And it has been since ancient times. Many of us cannot help ourselves but to integrate our stories into how we express our observations and opinions to others.

New York, NY, AI Do Good with Strategy Magic

Let’s face it, AI is making some sectors obsolete. That is the way of evolution, yes, but it also makes it necessary that those behind the development or market integration of AI stay on a path of AI do good.

Strategy Magic with AI to Market

Whether we as human beings think we believe in magic or not does not really matter. Or to put it another way, we believe in our own version of magic regardless. That is why strategy magic is so powerful, because whether you’re taking AI to market or whatever one’s industry offers, as long as one keys into that magic, one has a better shot at success.

Story is Key in Our Lives and Work

Story has been my thing since the very beginning. Even in my early years and was practicing another art form, I took a new approach and integrated storytelling into its presentation. Story allows one to look at good versus evil. It is an opportunity to do good by showing how the other path inevitably ends badly/

A Spoonful of Sugar Makes the AI Go Down

I recently became captivated with AI and its possibilities for doing good for humanity by integrating the telling of stories. My first inclination was toward AI helping to tell the stories, but have come to realize that actual human people do that best.

Personal Choice

Quite frankly, I believe AI is good for the corporate world as long as it is used responsibly, but as an artist, at least at the moment, do not feel it is as useful as I originally thought. Look at what has been showing up with artists potentially losing their jobs to it. For example, writers of stories and even those acting out those stories. Whether one needs AI or not is a personal choice. Whether you are a teller of stories or not, one’s own story is bigger than AI.

The Creative Process When You Least Expect it

A good friend and I were making each other laugh last night. We were caught up in creating a concept for providing guidelines for a participant to write about an important moment in their lives. But the ideas were completely absurd. I couldn’t tell you exactly why we were chuckling so hard, but it probably had to do with that our ideas were all cliques, metaphorical names given to things by self help gurus. I scrawled it all down in a notebook and it might show up in some project, somewhere.
