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 Game We Play The Seeds We Will Use And We Are Aiming to Create… Let’s Play Today we play a creomondi mix game: Abstraction Layer. It goes like this: We take two Seeds, one Subject Seed, and one Abstract Seed. We can use their combination for exploration or for free associations. As always, anything goes, as long as we use the combination of the Seeds as inspiration for creating something. The random set we got for the game today includes the Seeds Strings and East. And the Insight type we are aiming for is a New Word, which is … Read More

The Playground We Will Explore The Seed We Will Use in our Exploration And We Are Aiming to Create… Let’s Play Our exploration Seed today is Remake. With this Seed in mind, we shall look around us for inspiration to design an Amusement Park Ride, no less. I played at home today, and when I thought about the Seed while looking around me, the jigsaw puzzle my son and I are working on caught my eyes (well, it is, after all, in the middle of our living room). The connection to the Remake Seed is evident in retrospect: a jigsaw … Read More

one thing I observed   So, obviously, getting lost was only the first of many Insights from my short time in London. Some of them don’t have anything to do with London, except that I found them there, and that I was more observant than usual. And the Insight above is an excellent example of that. I found this Spiderman hat in the Tower of London, and maybe this adds some nice background story to the Insight. But what caught my eye is the clash between the old and the modern, and between the seriousness of the place and the lightness of this hat. But above all, when you ignore the context, the background story, and the fact that this is just a hat, this frame just happen to look like a scene from a Spiderman movie. Can you imagine Spiderman escaping this chamber? Or maybe, this bright light is a portal to another dimension in the Spider-Verse? one thing I thought of   Take two totally unrelated objects and put them together in the same frame, and magic can happen. Somehow, the interaction (and sometimes tension) between two objects (or an object and a context) even if placed arbitrarily … Read More

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   Today we are playing with a ReShape Seed, which means we will use a visual trigger for exploration instead of a textual one. What discoveries are ahead? Let’s play and see.

reflection   Yesterday, I concluded my reflection on the Insights I had captured with the following statement: Don’t judge your abstractions by evaluating their validity. Use them to capture creative Insights. If some of these Insights work — use them. And with that cryptic message I promised a follow-up today. So, here’s the thing…
