In 1817, the poet John Keats wrote about the notion of Negative Capability, that is, the capability of the artist to pursue a vision even when it leads them into intellectual and emotional confusion and uncertainty: ‘I mean Negative Capability, that is when a man is capable of being in uncertainties, Mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason.’ The creative process can be messy, frustrating and unfathomable.
