Daily Creativity #0018

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 Also Add a Constraint…

Let’s Play

We are playing in the street today, looking for discoveries inspired by the Z Seed. Since we aim to create a Photo Series, the result of our creative exploration can be used directly as ingredients for the end result (but you can, of course, use your discoveries just as inspiration and create something from scratch in the second step of the play).

During my creative exploration, I came across a building that is still under construction. It is designed with many crossing lines, a combination of wood, white bricks, and black cement, and strange angles. Together, all these elements create a modern, dynamic structure, which changes as you walk by it. The angles, the lines, and the different materials were a perfect match to the Seed we are playing with today.

I took quite a few photos of the building from different locations and angles. When I came back home, I started to play with the images. While I like each of the five photos I’ve selected, it is their combination into one series that has a real impact in my view. Together, they look like a jigsaw puzzle or a set of building blocks. When I realized that, I decided to arrange them in a non-trivial geometry for a photo-series: The shape they are creating together is dynamic. It lures the viewer to imagine different combinations and arrangements. And… it is also inspired by the Seed as it reminds me of the letter Z.

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!
