Lambert is a fellow at Eyebeam, which describes itself as an art and technology center offering a common working environment for artists and technologists to pursue digital experimentation. Some of its work, including some awesome art on a city-sized canvas, may be seen in this video.

Lately I have been focusing on the movement of “Taking Back (Public) Space“. Creating, shaping, using Public Space for our own benefit.

Well now TXTual Healing (Interactive SMS based Street Performance) have a launched a new project called Drip TXT (Working with Adam Chapman and the hand of Graffiti Artist Jesus Saves). Yet another example how Public Space is transforming into a playground.

This is Citizen Prime..He is NOT alone..

Role playing and Cosplay are big.. It is extending your virtual world into everyday reality.  The mekka of Cosplay is Japan. Where it is very common to see people dressed up on the streets. Have a look at this clip about Harajuku.

Somehow this converging of virtual worlds and the physical world is highly intriguing. With Augmented/Mixed reality the bounderies between these two worlds even become more vague.. Have a look at this clip and just try to imagine how the worlds might look.

Extending your avatar or WoW character into real life? Also trends like Parkour show a growing interest in reclaiming public space and see it as your public playground.

Probably the largest barrier for this to become more mainstream is a “safe” environment. High schools and universities will probably be the first places where this might take off. With games like Tag the first steps in that direction can be taken.

What can we learn from this?

You probably heard that In Sao Paolo Billboards are illegal?

Well there are other ways of taking back public space..

Below is a clip about the Pixelator rom Jason Eppink.

The Abstractor from Ji Lee is kind of the same project. Ji is also responsible for The Bubble Project

If we are slowly moving to an Creative/emotion driven market, how can stockmarkets/financial institutions assess value? How can you predict and define value in such an abstract, emotional and human environment.

I asked a question in LinkedIn. Excellent tool! See the question and answers below..

Conclusion: We tend to have different believes…

What is the most important ingredient in the process of creation?

  • The ability to suspend judgment and allow ideas to flow.
  • Brevity.
  • A well defined problem. In advertising, the problem might be “Our product (company) is perceived as such and such, we want to change that perception to so and so. How do we do it?”
  • Creativity … a defined problem and clarity are great, but you need to be able to go outside the box … often a long way when creating someting new …
  • Passion and simplicity.
  • Some people are better at creation than others. No mistake : all people are creative. But some have more passion, interest and talent for creation. Are willing to invest time in it, are taking the risks to experiment.
    Further : the right mix of people in a creation process : different kinds of people can augment each others’ talents.
    Environment : Differs greatly for different people, but Fear is the greatest enemy of creation. Boundaries, however, can help creation very well. I always like to think of the ideal creation environment as one where I would like to play a game in.
  • Perseverence/persistence, visualization, trust and inner peace
  • Trust! Theory of Social Constructivism: there is no one reality or there is only one reality, either is the same leading to us ourselves: the absolute top of creativity. Therefor it helps me to trust that coincidence does not exist as creation is creating reality.
  • Communication
  • Me… or you?
  • Well, based on my experience in creating mobile phones from idea to mass-market creation – mix of people, information (of market), experience, trial-error method and also perseverance to the issue at hand, and a bit of a madness as well…One of the most interesting concepts of a mobile phone was made in cellar of an old house purposefully – not within processes of full R&D engineers … At least, this is the way story goes 😎 .The process of innovation is naturally an interesting area where creativity is needed besides using it for advertising – where similar “propeller heads” are needed to create new campaigns…
  • I’m going to have to go with water, an amino-acid rich watery soup, and radiant energy (preferably UV).
  • Maybe this is too obvious, but it seems the answer is in the question: creativity. To drill down a bit, I’d say that means the ability to think in non-linear ways, to connect seemingly random ideas and (sometimes to one’s detriment) constantly live in the world of possibility. As with intelligence, though, I think there are a number of axes on which creativity can be measured (visual, verbal, etc.) (It has been postulated that the top 1% of creatives have characteristics that may put them at a psychological/functional disadvantage in the “real” world)
  • Tough question. As someone in a continually creative position I would say the MOST important ingredient is going to vary… Some days, a problem is presented and a creative solution is required. The pressure of the situation will often force creativity (think of a brainstorming session) Some days, creativity happens as a result of having time and resources at hand. (Consider playing around with ideas because there is NO pressure) Some days, creativity will spring upon you unbidden (think of the brilliant middle of the night idea). I think a willingness to accept is probably the only ingredient that consistently carries through all these situations. (And I am equally certain that there are other situations that elicit creativity.
  • Curiosity. That’s what gives me the ability to step into my client’s world. A strong desire to know or learn something that then becomes a product of my imagination
  • Fantasy and dreams

Thanks to all that contributed!

 

Funny one…

Thanks to Chroma

Just reading the 8th habit of Stephen R. Covey. What a treasure.. So inline with my thoughts and believes. Finally I can reference to a book 😉

Big difference is that I am not placing primarily individuals in this process of transformation but rather “legal persons” or objects(products, brands).

So many things I wish to share about this book…

Contribution Marketing

Contribution Marketing is the activity of focusing on creating intrinsic ‘product’ value with the purpose to contribute to individuals, groups and this planet. The coming years competitive advantage is created purely by right brain activities: creativity, intuition, communication and a holistic view of the world. This blog is about releasing the strength of the right side brain within businesses. It shows ways to create new value in an emotional driven world. This blog has the ambition to support companies to reach their true potential.

Companies applying Contribution Marketing see themselves as a part of society(instead of isolated closed entities) with a clear definition of their role on how to contribute to this society. These companies are not primarily focussed on growth, more profit or marketshare increase. These companies are focussed on creating TRUE(e.g. not aspirational) value to a group and extract sufficient value to be able to keep facilitating their selected group of people.

“Self Actualization is the intrinsic growth of what is already in the organism, or more accurately, of what the organism is.”
Maslow

A COMPANY AT BEST CAN BE ITSELF
