Summary, etc.:
Where does creativity come from? Zen calligraphic painter Alok Hsu Kwang-han proposes that it arises from emptiness, from the silent space that houses the intelligence prior to thought. Alok teaches painting "by not teaching painting." Instead he shows students how to get out of their way, so that creativity happens on its own.
