“One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
The creative process is a very personal thing with unknown roots that if we definition “create” means to bring into existence something that is new, something that did not exist before. Everyone is different there are some like Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love, explained it on her TedTalk “Your Elusive Creative Genius” where she explains her process of having to wake up every morning at the same time and sweat and work through it awkwardly while other like the American poet Ruth Stone who will feel the poem coming like thunder and she knew she had to run like hell to grab a piece of paper to write it down as the poem barrel through her. We can see above Sabela Tobar’s creative process of how she was inspired by the metamorphosis of jellyfish and created an aura of mystery, softness, darkness and elegance. Her portfolio was superb in clearly showing us her process from the research of the concept to the materials use in the collection to the designs and finally the final pieces. The viewer get a glimse of her creative process and how she utilize the concept to create the more literal pieces in the collection to the more abstract ones. Her portfolio is a great example of how an idea is developed into something solid, a dancing star in Nietzsche words.
