"..I think creative types are oftentimes so misunderstood by the get-shit-done types. I have an issue with people where I’m like, “It’s not as simple as delivering the thing.” If you want that, you probably have the wrong guy. I’m not a gun for hire. Even this conversation with you, I consider this part of the work."
Hassan Rahim, ssense interview
I suppose most creative work is by its very definition speculative. It is formed on a basis of incomplete information, involves intuition, and explores new areas, which means it also runs the risk of not always delivering what it promises. So, yes, I do think we engage in the creative process with slightly unpredictable results.
