We’ve featured Micah Ganske on the site a couple times (see here and here). Check out this video portrait, directed by Alex Amoling as part of Distinct’s doc series, to see why. In addition to offering a great introduction to his work (which combines elements of 3D printing/sci-fi/virtual reality with sculpture/painting), Ganske shares wonderful insight into his creative process and how his drive toward experimentation staves off creative blocks and cultivates the kind of inspiration that evolves gradually over time. Watch below!
“The Reinvention of Normal” is a fantastic little profile of artist, inventor, designer Dominic Wilcox. In the image above you can see a device he invented which allows him to use his right ear to hear what’s on his left, and use his left ear to hear what’s on his right. This is just one of the many brilliantly silly inventions he created as part of a project to make something creative every day for 30 days. Other creations include: toothbrush maracas, an umbrella that waters plants, and a soccer ball that mixes a smoothie.
I like to keep videos like this bookmarked for whenever I’m having a creative block. Everything he says is mind expanding, this is highly recommended viewing! Watch the artist profile below.
At the risk of having you never come back to this site, I have compiled a list of 17 other sites to feed your creative appetite. Dozens more could have been added to this list (perhaps there will be a sequel to it). Most of the sites included here do not get the credit they deserve, and even the popular ones deserve even more attention. In no particular order:
1. Triangle Triangle – A fantastic photoblog (my favourite on the entire internet). Jake’s tastes are really similar to mine.
