creative challenge – Day 4

FEP ( = Flying Elephant Project)
Day 4 – Thursday September 12th 2013

Today, go “ab·stract “ = expressing a quality or characteristic apart from any specific object or instance, thought of apart from concrete realities, specific objects, or actual instances, Fine Arts of or pertaining to the formal aspect of art, emphasizing lines, colors, generalized or geometrical forms, etc., especially with reference to their relationship to one another.

As we already did in yesterdays challenge, we will challenge our mind today with something which we are not so used to think or do normally – it is about challenging yourself, go out of your comfort zone…

a.Challenge for your mind:
Today I would like to share a video (TED talk about 11min.)  of a young Indian artist.
Why I choose this today – I think it is fascinating on how different his work went in such a short time of his life. His work is very inspirational.

b. challenge to practice:
create an abstract sketch of a dog, this is just a warm up, do not think to much. Start be sketching one eye, turn your sketch 90° degree clockwise, sketch the second eye, turn again 90° sketch a nose, turn 90° sketch one ear, turn second ear, turn sketch the leg, and so on…

 c. challenge to getting lost in time:
start a new abstract piece or continue to work on something you did before…

One response to “creative challenge – Day 4

  1. I think that this video was one of the biggest inspirations of all the input Heike provided us. It really helped me to free up and not be afraid to take on a new direction with my art if that is what I am led to. Interesting that we would have some challenges to create in the abstract, as that has been a personal challenge of mine for some time now. The one thing that all of our images seem to reflect is Freedom. I like that.
