Journey To Eureka is a manifesto for and a personal journey through the creative process. The work originated from a personal struggle of not getting anything done, feeling the pressure of deadlines resulting in lingering over every small decision I had to make. At that time I was working on a manifesto for the creative environment, so I initially had found a lot of resources on how to create such an environment; the next logical step was to test these resources to improve my own situation. This entire process opened my eyes on how odd but wonderful a creative process can be; which resulted in a so-called 'Eureka-moment': I would make a manifesto for the creative process.
Though there are certain rules and steps to improve creativity, every creative process is unique and has different challenges. I made a game which uses environments and levels as a symbol for my struggles in this creative process, dealing with time-pressure and tunnelvision amongst other things. The goal of the game is to find Eureka - the end of the creative process.
