Adaptability

A man who specializes in building brick walls could spend a lot of time and energy searching for an ever more exquisite brick for each new project.   In the end, his final product will still be a brick wall.


The materials used to create are almost irrelevant - creators make art with whatever it is they see before them.  After that, one must take responsibility for what one creates.


Do I really need the world's most exquisite dancers in order to create good choreography?  Do I need the world's best musicians to compose good music?  Do I need the hottest tools to come up with an interesting performance concept? I don't think that I necessarily do. After all, the Taj Mahal, the Colosseum of Rome, the Great Pyramids of Egypt - all were built with what were essentially just rocks.


Creators make art with whatever it is they see before them.


But one must take responsibility for what one creates.
