MIT Media Lab designer and professor Neri Oxman believes an output of creative energy is not unlike the output of chemical energy in living cells, thus resulting from the fluid movement from one realm to another. Often we believe Science and Art are two separate pathways of creation, but the reality of ingenuity is that hard and soft skills must unite to build new things.
Oxman proposes the Krebs Cycle of Creativity which locates Art, Science, Design, and Engineering in quadrants with distinct boundaries and specialized missions. This cycle helps solve problems in more innovative ways. When developing and navigating a project consider the intersections to make a fluid creative process that includes all areas.
