Creativity often challenges generally accepted assumptions and standards. After all, new ideas are new because they deviate from the norm, flout convention, or break rules. This installment explores creativity on the edge of legality and beyond, from makeshift Norwegian wineries to faking priceless art in China. Among the contributions, Anne Quito plunges into Manila’s forgery market, Ahmed Al Majid seeks out underground art in Saudi Arabia, Barbara Eldredge brings to light designer bags and gadgets for clandestine gardening, Jonah Goodman investigates how prisoners create imaginative inventions using contraband, and Peter Guest discusses Brixton’s homegrown currency.
