Offline experience awakens the creativity in you

There is always something to look for every day, such as weather forecast… We open our laptops or swipe a finger over the phone display yet in the comfort of the bed half woke up.

Offline or online. Where does your inspiration come from?

Only a few of us would really open a window or go out to the garden to find out how the clouds are moving to decide what to wear when the internet does such a great service for us.

Offline experience awakens the creativity in you

Being offline means putting more effort into even the simplest things. Unrealized, being inspired and attracted by constant online pop-ups that are there to remind us of our intentions we cannot measure with what the true experience is. It´s becoming scares as never because, blinded by the light of ever developing technology, it has become too hard to do.

Imagine you are about to find a creative solution for some challenging task without using the internet and instead use your own memory. The mind seems trained for massive waves of information that suddenly does not have, and is looking for something to refresh the new connections.

It is like old books that are sitting on the shelf no longer for their content. When you switch offline they become needed again and you can be happy for having good titles to read.

This idea brought me to how likely there are many artworks that have become pieces of decoration and that people live passing the actual content of other people’s creations and so they miss the opportunity of real experience.

In my view, the difference between an online and an offline inspiration is extraordinary in the ability of the viewer to see the value and realization of his own values in comparison. Which then can result in one´s decisions. SP

 

 

Take an action

 

Taking an action to get inspired is a part of the job.

 

When I dreamt about how I would like to spend my day,  it was easy but when it came to the point it  became quite difficult to get from the discipline mode to the artistic.

I think this is something that doesn’t come naturally without realizing what one is doing – bit of professionalism here right 😉

For some it might sound crazy, but if you realize that all that was just fun and free time activity and now it is becoming a part of my job, the change of mind set is amazing

“I just sat down to my computer and try to focus on the thoughts I collected during my morning inspiring exploration. I soaked all the colours in fresh spring light and smelled the sweet scents of blossoms and suddenly I am back in my “living room studio” writing post to describe these impressive moments of my creative process…”

Funny enough, I recall myself working in one corporation business department when I went for a few hours business trip after which I  sat down in my office to write a report into the system… Sounds similar? …not at all.  SP

Amateur Art

When an art becomes “mature”?

My recent post about visiting Amateur Art Fair brought me to this title which kind of categorises art.

I learned that it has its place and it brings something special – showing effort at first and althought there is always this word “amateur” leaving the feeling of lower quality in somewhat unidentifiable way, it has its own meaning.

It inspires in its subtle way of innosence not being heavy by other meanings. Instead, they were created in simple need of being creative. ŠP
