Creativity has no end

wonderful use of containers. They are transformed into works of and for play! You can swim in them, live in them, skate in them, use it as a stage, etc.



Cut the Crap

I really notice that I am the guinea pig in my own project. I feel tested over and over again. It is hard to break with old habits.

Vulnerability and failure are things we are not familiar with in our society and it takes practice and repetition to master this. Take for instance the movie Groundhog Day, the spell is broken when Bill Murray finally did everything right. The correct thing not being a general rule for mankind, but a personal recipe for enjoyment, understanding and appreciation of life.

Now, come on, GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER …and have fun with it..hmpf

question things

This wonderful video expresses a lot of what I would like to tell in my project. Why are things as they are? The industrial revolution has put mankind on a high-speed train and on this railroad of development we have adapted ourselves to the demands and possibilities that came along with the system. The rules and patterns we live by seem so natural and logical, that we don’t question why they are there, how they came into existence and if they are necessary.
Are we captured in a bubble of oblivion to the truth of our history and our own being?

The Right Way from hutch on Vimeo.

If it is true that we are disconnected from ourselves, then how to re-connect? It seems that individualism rules in our society where we are drifting around on solitary islands avoiding contact with any other. The confrontation which we are escaping from is exactly what we need to reclaim people’s sense of place and re-find (or maybe re-create) the patterns to memories and experiences. As hutch does, question objects and it’s use. Who said there is only 1 way to wear your gloves? Be creative with it!


Creative workshop

A successful workshop with Louder happened last Friday. The strategy:

* Detach people from what they know and what they normally do
* Place them in a new setting and challenge them. Make it playful and (inter)active
* Experience new ways of exploring creativity and gain new resources to find inspiration
* Aim and outcome will be that the individuals in the team will feel more comfortable and confident in their ideas

I divided the team into 3 groups. Each group received several envelopes containing:

1) location
2) playful task to get out of your comfort-zone.
3) assignment for research and/or observation
4) the actual briefing with a client, aim and target group

1) go to RÃ¥dhusplassen
2) write down your wish on the pavement or a wall. Do it big.
3) collect wishes (25-50) from random people, write them down and film it. Ask for instance:

– what’s your wish for today?
-what good news have you gotten recently?
– where would you wish to wake up tomorrow morning?
-make a wish for someone else
4) CLIENT: The Pope
TASK: We need more optimism.What makes you happy? Create a product/message/service for optimism. Preferably an interaction where people can share and exchange hopes and wishes
Target Group: 18-35

1) go to St. Hanshaugen Park
2) Introduce yourself to 5 random people. Pretend you are skiing (I gave them 2 tasks, since they didn’t have a hard time executing them.
3) observe people in Kaffebrenneriet: how do they socialize; how do they interact; what do they order; how is the interior? List all actions done there. Take notes.
4) Client: Kaffebrenneriet
Task: Kaffebrenneriet wants to profile themselves not only as a coffee to go place, but have their clients more socially involved. They want to introduce a new concept: Social Coffee. It comes with 3 new coffees and it needs a (social) activity. Create a(n interactive) concept
Target Group: 15-35 yrs

1) Go to Oslo Sentralstasjon
2) Go to Stasjonskontoret Ask for Håvard Svendsen and show the mail in this envelope. You should get a spot assigned next to café La Baguette near track 13-19.
3) Create a temporary open office for problem solving. Go to café La Baguette (track 13-19) report yourself. They have some furniture for you there is some material there as well. Make yourself at home!
Ps. Giving solutions is 1 thing, making the client feel happy&smart is another. If possible give people tools for finding the solution (e.g. the Anger Management Kit)
4) CLIENT: anyone/ everyone
BRAND: Louder
TASK: Today you have an open office, random people can come with any problem and you will try to find creative solutions at the spot. Promote Louder and follow up on: Actions speak louder than words.
Your task is to brainstorm live and promote yourself: Impro-Marketing. Sell your services for free.

I connected the last team to my KNOTREALLY problem blog. I made an event for it on facebook, to redirect more people to the open office at Oslo central station.

Perfect Balloons

Some wonderful intervention work of the artist William Lamson brilliant visualization of concepts in photo’s and video’s with a very plain and clear style. He uses a lot of balloons which has something kind and party-like to it, but balloons also have a representation of tension and pressure which is expressed in these works.
