Dear Patrick and list,
This discussion is really interesting because it illustrates that 'creativity' is a type of performative knowledge that we recognize through the social category of 'art'. Shows how difficult it is to represent certain signs and practices - drawing - outside of the concepts 'art', 'artist', 'creativity'.
