The word “art” is a common one in today’s digital world, but what does it mean?
What does the word “creative” even mean?
And how much of a contribution can it make to a creative process?
As a result, many creative thinkers are exploring new ways to think about what makes a good word, and what makes good writing.
Today we’re going to talk about how “art and craft” came to be.
This is an edited version of a lecture by Ben Stoll, who has written several books on the subject.
To listen to the whole lecture, you can listen to this episode on iTunes or the podcast.
Ben Stolle’s TED talk on the history of words: ‘The Art of Writing’ (2014) What is art?
What is creative?
How do we get there?
Ben Stoltel: This is what I call the art of writing, the artistry of writing.
It’s what we’ve been taught since the beginning of time.
We’re not going to have a perfect art, but we do have some good techniques for making art.
So, when you say “art,” that’s not a negative.
It means a kind of understanding of the world, and a kind.
Of how we are going to live our lives.
Ben is an artist, an essayist, a filmmaker, and an author, and he teaches at Yale University, at Stanford University, and at the University of California at Santa Barbara.

TED Talk: The Art of Written Word (2013) What does writing mean?
How does writing make up art?
Ben’s TED Talk on this question: “Art is Not the Art of the Written Word” (2011) What do I mean when I say “writing is art”?
What does it do for me?
Ben: Writing is a form of thinking.
I think the best way to put it is, “This is how we do thinking.”
Writing has become a way of thinking about, and writing is a way to think and a way for us to talk to each other.
Writing allows us to create new meaning in our lives by expressing the world through words.
Writing is also a way in which we can relate to each others’ thoughts.
It is a method for thinking about how we want to live.
I call this “the art of thinking.”

How does “artism” come to be?
In the 19th century, people were creating art, and many of them were artists, not writers.
Some of the leading people were William Wordsworth, Robert Browning, and John Ruskin.
These artists created some of our greatest works of art, such as the Eiffel Tower and the Sphinx.
Artists were creating ideas and stories for a world that they felt was not ready for them.
Some people called it “the new art,” and it was a new form of art that many people felt was more expressive and meaningful than classical painting.
These are the people that “artists” were writing about.
How did the word art come to mean something different today?
Ben wrote about the art movement and what it means to “artistic writers” back in 2010.
“Art and Craft” (2014).
How did “artistry” become associated with the word?
Artists and writers have been using words for thousands of years. Some words
