I just realised I am in my 10th year of continuously building communities, but since last few years I started to become aware of the fact I should actually label it that way. Sometimes I am so delved into practice, I do not even notice there is maybe a real need to stop and sit in front of the ‘white paper’ to name and rename your working processes and to (self)reflect on what you did.
I have became very inspired by primitif tools and organic&hybrid approach to producing things. Imagine like jumping in the place and situation where you do not have anything you used to have or you have use for what you did. So, you have to start inventing new practical realities. Well, this is just a start of my posts here that will deal with these processes. I will try to keep my writing pace as short and summarized as I can, because conciseness is my main goal.
Once being hooked up to writing, it always tickles you to get back.
I like being inspired by diverse things, no matter is it the arts, life, nature or science. Dance was always an integral part of my mind and the way I like to perceive the world – through movement and body awareness. One the most striking moment was when I discovered the world of La La La Human Steps and dancer Louise Lecavalier during my arts and humanities studies.
While I was starting as a blogger covering dance festivals I had an opportunity to take few photos of Lecavalier in Zagreb in 2007. Photos are still at wikimedia.
Here is also insightful interview with Lecavalier from 2019.
It’s unbelievable how she continues dancing with such strongness and at some point it becomes surreal. This surreal moment is why I always enjoyed here dance. Pure strength and embodiment of the presence in the moment.
As I am last couple of years interested in gamification methods for creating projects and curating exhibitions, as well as working on participation of the audiences, I always search for new toys, ops tools for delving into the processes of tinkering and idea making. Recently I started to study online UX (User Experience) Design in order to enhance the way I create my projects, either within the project management or as a simple weekend project to stretch my grey cells with some new idea or electronic object.
Here are some of the gems in this area I stumbled upon in October and November – to be considered the darkest months of the whole year, or maybe not. So, let’s see what do we have here:
The Start-up Game cards (I’ve found this last October at the Museum Shop in the Science Centre NEMO in Amsterdam). The game is interesting and it directs you through project creating.
Hello World in different programming languages makes it a sort of a geeky poetry too through the medium of coding.
Very nice article on programming as a poetry: https://medium.freecodecamp.org/programming-is-poetry-f2eabbe181f8
