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. Let’s Start with Experiencing Something Now, Let’s Create… Let’s Play Today, we are going to experience. Our experiences provide infinite ingredients for Creativity. And so, we will start with an experience, and use what we see, sense, and feel as inspiration for our creation. The Experience we will use today is walking backward. Don’t just think of it or imaginer it — try it. Walk backward for some time during the day. Be mindful of how things look, how people react, and, most importantly, what you sense and feel. Based on this experience, your goal is to imagine and write … Read More

one thing I observed   Well, more than one actually… So, here I was waiting for my bus. The road was almost empty, which is unusual for that time of day. After 20 minutes, we realized that the road is blocked and the bus will not be arriving any time soon. Opportunity. I decided to walk to the nearest train station. It was dark, and I took a route I never did before. I decided it’s a perfect chance to have an experience. During the next 30 minutes, I found things I don’t usually see. An animated horse, the moon hiding behind a composition of metal bars, and the silhouette of a flag that came alive thanks to the wind. The streets were almost empty, and I took the memories of all these treasures with me. I got to the train and felt an urge to do something new with the things I have collected. I downloaded a video editing app and started to play with the pieces of the puzzle. one thing I thought of   Capturing short videos instead of still images opened up a new world for me. Honestly, I don’t think the result is good, and … Read More

the challenge   Today we are playing In Reverse — an open invitation to look around us and capture anything that we find interesting. Then, we will use the Insight we capture to come up with a new Seed — one we can play with in the future. Here’s what I came up with. my insight   I had a day off, so my wife and I decided to spend the day in Jerusalem. It’s been quite a while since we visited Jerusalem, and in a sense, it was like traveling abroad. The sights, the smells, and the sounds were ones we are not accustomed to, so we had plenty of opportunities to experience and observe. And, so we found ourselves under these famous colorful umbrellas in a beautiful little street in the center of the city. I couldn’t resist taking a photo, and about one hour later I was glad that I had. In a completely different location, I found a small stand outside of an old shop selling colorful Jewish Kippas. They reminded me of the umbrellas in color and shape, but what was even more important is that both of them are used to cover the person … Read More

the challenge   Today I invite you to go back in time. Believe it or not, we have the technology. All it takes is to choose a domain or a period, do a quick search, and you are on your way. Pick some theme or a time you would like to visit, and then, using music, movies, clothes, or whatever comes to mind, visit that place and time.

the challenge   We are on a special assignment today. What seems to be a super-open challenge has, in fact, a very concrete goal: to make someone smile. How? By taking a single photo and showing it to them. Whether it is a photo of yourself, or of something you see, or something you create… you have only one frame to create this magic. What I can guarantee is that your smile will soon follow.

the challenge   Every now and then I play with a seempli eXperience instead of a creative challenge. Experiences are essential to creativity. They provide raw material for creation, for new thoughts and ideas, and for surprising connections. The major difference between playing with an eXperience and a creative exploration play mode is that we are not expected to create anything. In fact, we are not even expected to imagine or come up with an insight. All we need to do is to be present. To be connected to the experience and flow with it. Today, I am going to walk in the rain.
