Variations on normal by Dominic Wilcox


Speed Creating

Each day for 30 consecutive days I attempted to make something creative. I hoped to force myself into making quick decisions, creating things instinctively. You can find below an index of all 30 Days in the Speed Creating project linked to all the day’s pages. For more information about the project visit this page.

I recently exhibited some of this project in Milan, here are some pictures.

You can get updates on my future work on RSS, Twitter and Facebook.

Just as with health and exercise, the more you do something, the faster and more easily it comes. As an artist, this is a great example of what some might describe as priming your, “Creative Metabolism”. That is, the more you talk about ideas; think about them; and often- “let go” of them, the faster new ides come and the MORE they come, not just at that moment, but all the time. You already demonstrate such a high “creative metabolism” with your numerous ideas, that a project like this coming from you does not surprise me. Brilliant as always! Keep it up.

Great to see you at the Pecha Kucha in Gateshead last night – inspiring in all senses of the word. A reminder in these downbeat times that a new slant on the everyday world can make you laugh and open your mind at the same time. Was going to pick out one for special mention but they’re all so good!!

Heidi?

Comment by Dominic (admin)

your creations are wonderfully amazing!

i will never look at grapes or bread the same way.

Comment by Belle

It looks like you are getting the attention your artistry deserves. You are an amazement.

Comment by Suzie

This is a great incentive for us part time artists who are always waiting for the “right” or “perfect” time to create. We need to be mindful that creating should be an intrinsic part of our everyday lives. Thank you very much for your inspiration!

Comment by Sandy

Nice to hear

Comment by Dominic (admin)

You and your blog keep me from working and I am so thankful that there is at least one useful thing I am doing during the day. :-)

Thanks a lot and I can’t wait to see more!

Definitely creative and a great endeavor. Nice way to step away from the norm.

Comment by LaToniya Jones

Awesome stuff you create.

Comment by little me

I truly believe in doing one creative thing every day. I think it should be a movement. It may help people to lighten up and not take everything so seriously. And just
think of the things!

Comment by Terry B Gardner

Mad, but fantastic!

All of this is fascinating and what a clever and imaginative person you are.

Thank you, you have some good ideas.

Comment by Dominic (admin)

Haha, I love it. Your brain connects weird things to make newer, weirder things. Ahh – so rad. Speaking of weird stuff, you should check out a really weird band called total unicorn. Linked to them in my post.
