Abstract [en]

Our world is filled with creativity; it is a part of everyday life for all humans. All products and artefacts in the public realm and in our private space come from creativity. Some are created to satisfy a certain need in the society and others are created to please the artist creating it. There are thousands of other reasons why we have a need to create.

Creativity would not exist without the imagination and both are crucial to humans and the development of society.

The imagination is endless; it can take you back and forth in time letting you travel to inexistent places,so that you can create an utopia for yourself. Imagination is crucial in a creative process: without it, the creatvive process would be somehow crippled. Through imagination we are able to see the goal ahead.

On one hand working with creativity is frustrating, since it is a constant search for solutions and new ideas. On the other hand it is very rewarding: the moment one finds answers, starts the work and finally comes into a state of flow, creative work suddenly is worth the frustration. The search for flow through challenging tasks is a way to improve the quality of both your artistic life and your life in general, and it is open to anyone who sees the point of the struggle.

In this essay I want to research the world of imagination and creativity: what do we use it for and why do we need it, how come it is so necessary? A creative process can be everything from frustration to complete satisfaction, such as a state of ecstatic flow.
