element of surprise

Posted on: September 1, 2012


Most creativity is a transition from one context into another

where things are more surprising.


There’s an element of surprise, and especially in science,

there is often laughter that goes along with the “Aha.”


Art also has this element.


Our job is to remind us that there are more contexts

than the one that we’re in —


the one that we think is reality.


Alan Curtis Kay
