HYPOTHESIS

UNIFIED FIELD

A creative process is involved in developing novelty in all crafts. Reoccurring patterns define a unified creative process that apply to all disciplines. By comparing the subjective nature across different arts, then outliers of novelty will reveal objective first principles of the creative process.
