Gischeleman: "To Create With the Mind"
Limitations as Assets
- A limited camera (as on a cell phone) takes its own kind of pictures, and accentuates your eye for lighting, distance and how things look from a distance. This photo is from my cell.
- Any musician with a distinctive sound got there as a result of some limitation in his or her playing. Thelonious Monk held his fingers wrong over the piano, creating "off" notes. Ornette Coleman grew up with subpar /d toy instruments, creating a unique perspective on tuning and melodics. Jimi Hendrix was left-handed, but took a right-handed guitar and strung it backwards.
- How many artists developed their influential styles due to some mental, physical or equipment limitation?
I’ll bet you use your limitations as assets, even if you don’t know it. Do you what they are?
