On the Importance of Constraints


“Much of the beauty that arises in art comes from the struggle
an artist wages with his limited medium” ~Henri Matisse

Constraints lead to problems and the necessity to overcome that problem often becomes the mother of inventions and innovations we enjoy today. When people urge you to think outside the box to be creative, there must first be a box to think outside of. So, rather than be troubled by it, embrace the “creative constraints”.
