Daily Creativity #0014

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

Today, our game starts with creative exploration wherever we are. Carry the No Entry Seed with you (in your mind) throughout the day, and look for things you can associate and fuse with it.

When I went for a walk on the beach today, I found this fence creating a perfect tension with the blue sky. The dark color against the soft blue and white, the manmade geometry of the fence versus the natural, free form of the clouds, and of course, the sense of an obstacle in contrast to the openness of the sky, all made this a great frame.

The second part of the challenge is to write a Haiku inspired by what we’ve found. The tension between the limiting, even threatening fence, and the open sky, the clouds, and the bird, resulted in the following Haiku.

For the clouds and birds
borders are nothing more than
décor in a play

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!
