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.

  1. Thank you for coming an speaking in our Lecture today at Chelsea! Your work is amazing! And I know it has inspired a lot of us to get up and give our creative side a chance to explore new options that we have over looked for so long! I really enjoyed today! Thank you again!!
    Also, is there a way to fallow your blog?

  2. 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.

  3. 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!!

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  7. 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!

  8. Absolutely amazing how you come up with something different everytime! Loving the Popup Train Tray & Inflated Socks the most!

  9. Superb work and nice ideas. Inspiring. Very inspiring.
    I like your point of view. come to my webpage, maybe you will find some interesting things there (there is some stuff in english 🙂

  10. 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.

  11. Do you wanna help me in my project? Send comments with ideas to I do in my blog feriasdearte.blogspot.com (the blog is in portuguese, ’cause i’m brazilian). Thanks and congratulations. There are many newspaper talling about that here.

  12. your a genius man! some of these inventions were exciting and others were great for laughs, either way i loved them all! keep doing what you love!
