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 Today, we start our game in a great Playground: A Museum. Before you dismiss that as an unfeasible idea due to scheduling constraints, consider this: you don’t have to physically visit a museum to explore one. There are numerous resources online that can help you explore standalone artworks or an artist’s body of work. The best way to play in the Museum Playground if you can’t visit a physical museum, though, is to take … Read More

one thing I observed   What is it you’re looking at, you might be wondering? Try to forget that for a second, and let yourself drown in this blue-greenish color and the mesmerizing geometric pattern. You might recognize this ceiling covering the entrance hall of the British Museum in London. I found it hypnotizing. I don’t know how (or if) to compare it to the real exhibits in the museum. But it was an eye candy that made me smile and imagine. one thing I thought of   We go to museums for the exhibits on display. But museums are often impressive buildings with irregular architecture and interior space design. Some spaces or elements within them can be fantastic to observe and explore. They might be great to get lost in. They might even be a work of art. Exploring the spaces between the formal exhibits is a fun exercise in shifting focus from the “main event” to something in the background, or something we didn’t intend to see. one thing to go   On your next museum visit, explore the spaces between the exhibits. Capture insights you find when observing them.

one thing I observed   I found this lovely street art near a grand parking lot in Tel-Aviv. Unfortunately, I don’t recall the artist name, but these amazingly simple abstract figures are practically scattered all around the southern parts of the city. Typically, they are much smaller, but this couple was seen from quite a distance. But it was only when I got closer that I saw the black motorcycle decorating the scene. It was a perfect addition to the frame. In fact, it added a kind of a background story to it. It gave the figures a new context. Are they lovers running away? Is one of them about to ride into the sunset, leaving the other behind? What do you think? one thing I thought of   It’s amazing how an ordinary detail — something you see or even use every day — can spice up an idea or something you are creating. The accidental (or intentional) addition of the motorcycle above, gave this artwork a new life and more than one possible new meanings. If it were replaced with a different object, the story would have changed. The same idea can be applied to areas other than … Read More

the challenge   It’s the holiday season, so we used this chance to visit the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. I took the Art 101 Prism for the ride to make the visit even more creative. If you don’t have time to go to a museum today, you can play Art 101 by exploring street art, an art book, or using a web service such as Google Art and Culture. And the Seed we are playing with today is Rainbow. Ready? Let’s explore art! my insight   Looking for a rainbow in an art museum should be reasonably easy, so even before I went in, I decided to avoid capturing an Insight which based on the artwork. I love museums not only for the artworks they host. The architecture, the lighting, and the design of the galleries, all encapsulate numerous chances for exploration and discovery. Today was a vacation day, and the museum had many activities designed specifically for children. One of them was dedicating an entire gallery for kids to paint on its walls. This is where I captured today’s Insight. It looks pretty trivial at first, and maybe it is. But what I love in this Insight, is the … Read More

the challenge   Five days ago I visited the Israel Museum in Jerusalem with the Art 101 Prism and five random Seeds. My goal was to explore the artworks using the Seeds — to see them through these magical glasses. Today we are concluding the mini-series of five posts dedicated to this visit. I chose to conclude this exploration activity with a special Insight inspired by a special Seed — the Little Treasure Seed.

the challenge   It’s the fourth part of my Art 101 challenge — exploring artworks in a museum and capturing insights inspired by seempli Seeds. The next Seed I played with is the Genesis Seed. I felt I had to find something to justify such a meaningful title. And luckily, I did.
