Innovation, Creative Process and Abstract Ideas
Innovation is the outcome of a definable logical sequence of developments within an evolved creative process, derived from an abstract idea or desired alternative to the perceived reality of an existing problem
Innovation is beneficial but not necessarily required to be economically viable. We may benefit from the research of the Hedron Collidor but may not recoup the financial investment. It is still an innovation.
An Architect has an Abstract idea he can visualize building the tallest skyscraper 101 in Taipei 200 metres from an earthquake fault line and in the path of many typhoons. The perceived reality is that anything this high would be destroyed by a big earthquake and blown by 200 kilometre winds.
Evolved creative processes occur for each challenge faced from the beginning and sub-creative processes for problems arising as the building progresses. Each stage creates its own challenge and each contractor evolves their solutions for problems they face along the construction process.
Ultimately you may define the creative processes as logical sequences of developments, but only after it’s completion just as we write up scientific papers for experiments in a laboratory, but only after we complete it. This makes Architects, Scientists and Entrepreneurs as much artists as any 4 year old child.
