#creativeUNblock no.8

Here we are, project number 8 of 12! {If you missed the other projects, no problem, you can catch up right here.} This project is from American artist Sidney Pink. The idea this month is to set some rules and then play within them… in 30 minutes or less! Ready?

“Creativity thrives when we are given restrictions. Ask someone to write a story about anything and they’ll wallow in indecision. Ask them to write 1 page about their first pet in less then 3 minutes and the story will start to flow. Create an original image in less then 30 minutes based on one of the metaphors below. Don’t worry about the out come, just get it done.”

“It was raining cats and dogs.”  or “He swam in a sea of diamonds.”

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Sidney gave different metaphors in the book, and I picked the two above, just to shake things up. I really like both of them, and I hope you will too {I’m actually tempted to combine them!} If you’d like to share what you make, just put it up on Instagram or Twitter and hashtag it #creativeUNblock. Have fun!
