Daily Creativity #0009

Lidor WyssockyDaily Creativity

Every day we play with a creative challenge. What we create doesn’t have to be grand. It doesn’t have to be perfect. We aim to stretch our creative muscles, be playful, and have fun!

Every day we take a little journey with some unexpected turns. That’s the beauty of creativity. If you just let it, it will fill you with wonder.

The Challenge

Our creative challenge today is made of the following set. If you are familiar with the creomondi building blocks, use the set to explore, imagine, and create. Alternatively, read how we played with it for inspiration first.

The Playground We Will Explore

The Seed We Will Use in our Exploration

And We Are Aiming to Create…

Let’s Play

Our Playground today is unlimited. We seek inspiration for a Drawing wherever we go, and to help us tune into specific things, we shall use the Symbiotic Seed.

I went on a walk with the Seed in mind. Creative exploration is always surprising. You can come across something you know very well, but with a specific Seed as your magical glasses, it gets a new meaning or sparks a unique insight. And this living wall was exactly something like that.

I saw this wall numerous times before, but I never stopped to think about it. Today, this wall became a perfect, even if not trivial, example for symbiosis. The wall is the platform on which the plant grows. Without the wall, the plant would probably not have thrived. In a sense, the wall also provides the plant protection because animals and people can’t reach most of it. At the same time, the plant turns the wall into eye-candy and a natural part of its surroundings (as this wall is placed in a park).

I captured this discovery and went on with my walk. Even before I came back home, images of entire cities with green buildings started to float in my mind. I imagined an artificial rainforest made of green skyscrapers, in a perfect symbiosis between a modern city a natural environment.

To make this idea simpler, I decided to narrow down the focus from an entire city to a specific item. And what would be better than to use a well-known monument? And so, I chose the Eiffel Tower and imagined it as a living monument, covered with plants like a giant tree in the middle of Paris.

If it isn’t clear, I am not used to draw. And that is precisely the reason that this was an experience. We are not aiming to create a masterpiece, but rather to have fun and experiment with our Creativity. Having said that, I have to admit, I kind of like the result 🙂

Now, It Is Your Turn…

Don’t follow my steps! Take the set of cards and play with them. Use them as a guide and not as a set of rules. Let your imagination lead the way. Don’t dismiss your ideas.

Have fun! Be creative!
