Daily Creativity #0005

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 Seeds We Will Use in our Exploration And We Are Aiming to Create… Using Also the Constraint… Let’s Play Taking photos is now easier than ever before. Thanks to smartphones, most of us carry a camera with us wherever we go. And with it, many of us take hundreds if not thousands of photos a year — most of which will probably remain unused. And yet, each photo captures something we noticed and wanted to recall later. These unused photos are a kind of a time capsule — fragments that we can use not … Read More

the challenge   Today we will dive into a new playground — one we didn’t play in till now: a book. The Pulp Fiction Prim sends you to explore a fiction book you are reading (or one you read recently) and use the Seed as a trigger for gaining a new Insight about the story. The Insight itself can take any form and be focused on anything as long as it is part of the book: a scene, a character, a dialogue, the mood and so on. So, grab a book you are reading and capture an Insight inspired by the Roots Seed.

the challenge   Our mission today involves taking a walk in memory lane using a family album. Can you imagine creative Insights hiding among your old photos? Well, it’s a perfect playground for our creative challenge and an opportunity to see things we haven’t notice before (or just see things differently). The Seed we are playing with is Space Invaders. Don’t you have aliens hiding in your family album?

the challenge   Memory Lane is a Seed with more than a title — it includes some instructions. In this case I should capture an Insight inspired by a childhood memory. With this Seed I got a Constraint Prism instructing me to make sure the Insight I capture uses lighting as an important element in it. With that in mind I went out…

the challenge   I am on in an exploration mode again today, looking for things inspired by the Time Tunnel Seed. I have to admit, this is one of the Seed I use most in workshops. So I doubted my ability to surprise myself. Armed with the Seed in mind, I went out for some errands.

the challenge   It’s 6AM and the challenge I got today is based on the Technicolor Prism. The guidelines are simple: I should capture an Insight based on the color of the Seed card while ignoring its text. That’s not the default play-mode with seempli, and that’s exactly why this is going to be interesting. In a sense, focusing on the color activates different areas in the brain than focusing on the text. The Seed randomly selected along with the Prism is the Tension Seed, but that’s beside the point. It is its orange color that I should focus on…

The Magic Button

Imagine having a magic button in your brain. A button you can push to open your mind and effectively start learning and memorizing new things. Imagine you can do one simple thing before you go into class, or before you approach a new task at work, that will make you perform better (and enjoy it more as well). Now, stop imagining! Why? Because this magic button is already embedded in our brain. Curious?
