Thinking Cap

Thinking Cap is an evolving series of inquiries into the creative processes of experimental artists, musicians and personalities. It's an open-ended journey through the circuitry of the inspired.

Artists all have their rituals for getting into the heat of their energy. Hemingway would stop working when he had a good idea to save some motivation. Gertrude Stein would only work for 30 minutes each day. Mark Mothersbaugh gets up at 3am to draw every morning. Some people need a certain room or a certain outfit or need to get naked. The Thinking Cap, outfitted with a POV camera, captures that process with all the shakes, swoops and cries of victory in real time.

Share something about your creative process with us on Instagram, Vine or Twitter. We'll keep an eye out and send treats to the creators who catch our eye.
