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 Now, Let’s Create… Let’s Play For my exploration walk today, I took the Yo-Yo Seed. Now, I have to be honest: I completely forgot about it during my walk. I took plenty of photos of interesting things and didn’t consider the Seed at all. Until I came back home and explored the images and found this one. Well, I didn’t really see it like this. I had to turn this lollipop street-art upside down to make the yo-yo pop out of it, which is a good reminder … Read More

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

Let’s try to experience this first hand and fully immerse ourselves in it. I have to admit … 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

When I went for a walk on the beach today, I found this fence creating a perfect tension with the blue sky. The dark color against the soft blue and white, the manmade geometry of the fence versus the natural, free form of the clouds, … 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 challenge   Today we are playing Total Recall. You challenge is to pick a visual Insight (or any other photo for that matter) you’ve captured in the past and write a short story or a poem inspired by it. Note that you shouldn’t describe what really happened in the scene you’ve captured. Just use what you see in the Insight as a trigger for imagining an entirely new story. my insight   The light drew her like as if she was a moth. It was bright white, and yet somehow it managed to color the night in blue. She was hypnotized. Every step she took she knew herself less.

The infinite space was full of people, but she was never so alone. She cannot go back. There’s nowhere to go back … Read More
