one thing I observed


one thing I thought of


One easy way to turn an everyday object to something more enigmatic, unusual, or just something that catches one’s attention is by duplicating it. Somehow, the simple act of placing two identical or nearly identical objects in the same frame makes us stop for a second and pay closer attention.

And strangely enough, sometimes when you are facing a problem, and you are trying to come up with a creative solution, duplicating the problem opens up new possibilities and offers fresh perspectives. Sounds strange? Try it!

one thing to go


Look around you for twin objects. Try placing familiar objects in pairs, in the same frame. Try duplicating a problem you are trying to solve and reflect on what this does to the solution space.
