Footsteps After Thought explores the implications and extent of our creativity. It embodies a self-reflexive study of man's interaction with recurring metaphysical questions of human existence. Through this vehicle of the creative experience we explore the perhaps imaginary terrain of intuitive knowledge and its seemingly mystical element we experience as «inspiration.» We examine how the varied and expressive «languages» of art may provide insight into metaphysical questions that have historically transcended our powers of logic and prosaic deliberation. The epistemological and ontological implications of such an approach are examined, as well as the affective dimension of artistic experience and its intricate relationship with belief.
