The Key is Observation. Art, the Media.

Observation is the key to creativity.  It is obvious that a photographer must observe to find an image to present and then decide how to present that image.  Any kind of artist must observe.  If painting, drawing, dancing, writing, every creative must observe their surroundings in order to find the substance from which to create.

Man at the beginning of time needed to observe his surroundings.  The terrain, weather, animals all needed to be observed just to survive.  One day man had enough time to think about what was observed.  Man began to wonder why he existed, if there was more to than just the observed.  Man began to create art on the walls of caves.  Art became the form to explain the unexplainable.

The key is observation.  Art is the media.
