Is a full description of the creativity spectrum told through the 15 colour diagrams of the O(map) theory. It also tells the story of how artistic research helped me to discover it, and how this realisation has changed my life.
Welcome to the O(map). It will change how you see.
The O(map) is a theory of creativity researched by artist Catherine Barron, that deals with the problem of defining what creativity is, by describing how it works.
The theory is based on the realisation that creativity manifests as a spectrum, which is artistically explored and visually articulated through 15 colour diagrams.
Corroboration for the visual indicators has found broad agreement with research in various disciplines that include neuroscience, physiology, anthropology, psychology, and philosophy to name but a few.
The O(map) definition relates specifically to human beings, and concludes that creativity is the life force of evolving consciousness in space and time.
