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, our goal is to write a 50-Word Story — a micro-universe with precisely 50 words, no more and no less. To find inspiration, we will look around us, wherever we are and wherever we go, and we will use the Casino Seed as something to help us focus and discover surprising things. I went jogging with the Seed in mind. On my way, I saw a young woman, all dressed up for a workout. If it wasn’t for … Read More

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 saying “good morning” to someone you don’t know. As you will see in a minute, you can take this straight forward (although not necessarily easy) experience in different directions. But even more important is to notice how it makes you (and the other participant in this engagement) feel. If … Read More

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

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

one thing I observed   It’s common to find bicycles around the city. People are locking their bikes to practically anything. It is also not rare to find bicycle parts locked, like a wheel or the frame of the bikes. But this was the first time I saw not one but two wheels, placed one on top of the other, chained to a strange-looking wooden structure. They looked like they were there for a while, which made me wonder, why locking the two wheels (which are easier to carry than the frame) and where exactly is the frame. And this is when I started to imagine… one thing I thought of   Maybe these wheels are not part of a bicycle after all. Perhaps they are part of two unicycles. Imagine a strange couple riding on two unicycles, and then dismantling their wheels and locking them when they arrive at their destination. Are they acrobats? Maybe they leave in the smallest apartment and could not store two bicycles? Or perhaps they could not afford to buy two regular bikes? The things we observe make us wonder. And the combination of exploring something and wondering about it can lead to imagining … Read More

the challenge   Let me start with a confession. Sometimes I think of a Prism or a Seed, and I know they have great value even before I try them myself. And when I eventually do try them, it often starts with the words: “What was I thinking?!” Not because they don’t have value, but because I don’t know how to approach them. At first. The Prism we will play with today is one of those Prisms. I knew it had to work, but when I first played with it, I wasn’t sure I was up to the challenge.

the challenge   Today we are playing with a special challenge. To start with, it is seedless. Here’s the deal: you need to pick an object — something you can actually see in front of you or maybe even pick up — and describe it as if this is the first time you see it. For obvious reasons, I chose… my keyboard. Now, I’m working hard trying to ignore the fact that I am using it, and treat it as a strange, unfamiliar object.

the challenge   Today is writing day, and our prompt is the Sugar Free Seed. Our assignment is to write a very short story (or any other text) inspired by the Seed.

the challenge   The Prism we are playing with today is called Super Glue, and it will take us both on a creative writing assignment and on a creative exploration. The first part of the challenge is writing an ultra-short story with exactly 50 words which includes the titles of both Seeds: Time Standing Still and Opportunity. If you are unfamiliar with the concept of 50-Word Stories, you can look it up, but basically what you need to know is that the story should be made of exactly 50 words — no more and no less. How can you squeeze a meaningful idea into exactly 50 words? Well, that’s part of the challenge! The second part of today’s assignment is to capture an Insight inspired by the story.

the challenge   Today I decided to play a little more with the Remix Seed and the Colorize Prism. But unlike what I did yesterday, today I decided to write something instead of looking for a visual insight. So, let’s add to this mix another constraint: writing an ultra short story with exactly 50 words — no more and no less. And of course the story should be inspired by the Remix Seed and by the color of the Seed.
