I just took part in a very interesting study about if and how an artist’s environment and daily routines influence their creative work and ideas. Liat Harel, student at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, interviewed visual artists from all over the world about their daily routine, hobbies and habits – to study similarities and differences between them against variations in culture, environment and scenery.
There were two particularly interesting results: (a) we all drink coffee! and (b) we all own exactly the same lamp. Strange, isn’t it?
