Inspiration Lives In the Unexpected

This past week has been a vicarious ride along side world class athletes that have gathered in London to compete at the 2012 Summer Olympics to win a good fight and take home the gold.  Two nights ago, I was watching the Olympics and found myself in awe of the strength, drive and comradery the Women’s Gymnastics USA Team embodied. As I watched the team seesaw between disappointment, vigor & victory, I found myself invested in their efforts to win. By the third apparatus, not only was I invested, I was truly moved and inspired.

In reflecting on my practice as it is today, I saw that I have inherited a default reaction to reach for the latest magazine or search the web for the hottest trends for what we call inspiration. Although there are many a times that I find such amazing work through media, this past week was a great reminder that inspiration lives in the unexpected.

Ted Talk: Bjarke Ingels: 3 Warp-Speed Architecture Tales

We’ve been passing around this particular Ted Talk via email to a bunch of our creative folks, but it’s too awesome to not share with everyone else. Prior to finishing the Business Program at UW, I was an aspiring architect. Watching this reminded me why I wanted to be one. Sustainable architecture was what drew me into that industry, but this fella took it to the next level by integrating his eco-bold designs with natural, urban surroundings and its occupants in mind.

Once you get passed his shirt, goofy posture, and accent, you learn how brilliant this man and his team are. Things start getting super juicy towards the last 10 minutes (most especially the last 5 minutes), but take the 20 minutes time to really get moved and inspired.

Goodness..

Art as Social Intervention

In Botafogo Beach, Rio de Janeiro, an installation made of recycled plastic bottles is on display as part of the Rio+20 Earth Summit.  In 2013, New York’s Water Tanks will be wrapped with custom-designed artwork by Jeff Koon and other artists to raise public awareness of the importance of protecting a natural resource, water.  To learn more about this project click here.

It’s great to see more and more of these large scale public art installations that engage the public on social/environmental concerns. And definitely inspiring when art becomes a medium for social engagement and in turn evoking the public to take action.
