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 Play Today, we start by exploring nature. Go out and find a piece of nature, even if it is in the middle of the city. The Seed we will use to drive our creative exploration is the Ghost Seed. Anything in nature you can associate or fuse with Ghost would be a great discovery, so record it — you will use it in the next step of the game. When I went out on a short bike ride today, I … Read More

Since we aim to create a Photo Series, the result of our creative exploration can be used directly as ingredients for the end result (but you can, of course, use your discoveries just as inspiration and create something from scratch in the second step of the play). During my creative exploration, I came across a building that is still … Read More

On the one hand, they should obviously have a plot, even if a very condensed one. On the other hand, they leave plenty of room for interpretation, and every reader can complete the missing details using their own imagination. Add to that the rigorous constraint — their length should be exactly 50 words — and you get a cool creative challenge. Today we are going to write a 50-Word … Read More

The Inspiration Stream mix starts with writing a Stream of Consciousness fluently based on a Seed. The Seed we are playing with today is Infinity. There is more than one way to create a Stream of Consciousness. You can use text or doodles or mix … Read More

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

This is the most generic Playground designed to practice creative exploration wherever you go. All you have to do is to look around you mindfully and using all your senses. When I started to play today, I was at home. I’ve picked the exploration Seed Houdini and began to look around me for inspiration. In my bedroom, I found our closet mirror. Obviously, it wasn’t a surprise. I see … Read More

I prefer to play early in the morning to start the day with some playful creativity, so this Playground imposes a challenge: a trip to an amusement park requires some planning and preparation. Luckily, you can have different kinds of experiences based on each Playground. And so, I decided to explore some amusement parks online. Initially, I thought of taking a virtual tour in … Read More

reflection   What I love most about creativity in general and creative exploration with seempli in particular, is that it feeds itself. If you just let it, Creativity creates (or becomes) an infinite positive feedback loop which is not easy to break. It’s like your brain is always one step ahead of your consciousness, paving the way to the next discovery and creation.

reflection   Last night I went to see one of my favorite Israeli artists: Rona Kenan. It’s been almost eight years since she released her previous solo album. A lot has happened in this time, and as often is the case, you don’t realize that something is missing until it comes back into your life, even for a short time. That’s how I felt when a few weeks ago a new song by Rona Kenan showed up in my Spotify recommendations.

Creative Boost for Photographers

When people ask me what kind of a photographer I am, I find it hard to answer. I don’t like to define (or label) my artworks. So instead of defining my artworks, I describe what I love to do: I love wandering the streets just when the sun is rising, when the streets are almost empty and often the only sound I hear is the sound of my footsteps. The feeling is surreal, as if time is standing still. And if by any chance I find something I simply cannot ignore, everything becomes magical…
