the inspiration

*the most text about history of art if not particulary different mentioned is took from the wikipadia.

Inspiration in artistic composition refers to an irrational and unconscious burst of creativity...In the earliest discussions of inspiration (in the works of Homer and Hesiod), the ritualistic and divine origins of the breath of a god are important.

In Greek thought, inspiration meant that the poet or artist would go into ecstasy or furor poeticus, the divine frenzy or poetic madness...
In Hebrew poetics, inspiration is similarly a divine matter.
In northern societies, such as Old Norse, inspiration was likewise associated with a gift of the gods.

John Locke's model of the human mind suggested that ideas associate with one another and that a string in the mind can be struck by a resonant idea. Therefore, inspiration was a somewhat random but wholly natural association of ideas and sudden unison of thought.

Sigmund Freud and other later psychologists located inspiration in the inner psyche of the artist. The artist's inspiration came out of unresolved psychological conflict or childhood trauma. Further, inspiration could come directly from the subconscious.

Marx did not treat the subject directly, but the Marxist theory of art sees it as the expression of the friction between economic base and economic superstructural positions, or as an unaware dialog of competing ideologies, or as an exploitation of a "fissure" in the ruling class's ideology.

Is Creativity (or creativeness) a mental process involving the generation of new ideas or concepts, or new associations between existing ideas or concepts???

Up there you can see some works of a friend of mine- that I used like an inspiration for my new "beeing in Erfurt" experience works. Of course mine looks more "scary" :) and for the end of this post I just want to say to an other friend of mine:" You are right I should overlook my english, all the mistakes but there are theese periods, but this isn t an excuse :)

Enjoy my works...still in progress - probably I will finish them :)
P.S. I enabled the comments again - just called them THOUGHTS...
