Creativity Brought to Life


As we discussed in class what the accordion book is and how incredibly fast I knew what I wanted to do. It was very surprising to me seeing that I am such an indecisive person yet, I was just amazed at the creativity in a book. I have always been attracted to the arts and languages. Sadly, the carrier path that I have chosen for myself is surrounded by the sciences. I knew I wanted to study the sciences at a very early age, driving all my focus towards STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) courses, camps, readings, and experiences. Because of this, I always felt restricted creatively. I even yearned to attend art classes, such as my younger sister did, just to have an artistic medium to physically create art. I always wished to expand my view of the visual and literary arts and that is exactly what the Accordion Book made me feel. As Professor Wells explained to us the process of creating the book, it was as if someone had opened a door to my mind into a world of creativity. I instinctively started to think of all the versions an Accordion Book could become because I had the freedom and creativity to make it so. In class, I was able to quickly sketch and measure the idea I had. I am very much looking forward to future projects where I can further expand my mind.
