EXPERIMENTATION. PLAY. RISK TAKING. PUSHING YOUR COMFORT LEVEL.
The ability to take chances and risks as a designer may mean that you are at the office or in the classroom longer- but the benefit of being willing to fail at something means that you are willing to create something worth while. Nothing worthwhile just happened- inspiration just does not happen it must have something to latch on to- it must find you working, struggling, fighting, trying.
And so fine artists are great examples of those willing to try something new. What I love about them is their ability to stay true to their brand while doing so- Lee Ufan said it best- " Expressive action begins with sensing a rupture in existence. The desire to eliminate this gap and become fused with existence itself becomes the will to create art. Various kinds of expression are tested while seeking a world of existence with a sense of unity, where what is seen, felt, and thought coincides with what exists."
Expression is key. After all is that not what we as artists and designers strive for? The ability to move someone- convey an emotion...
SPREAD THE PASSION. IGNITE THE SPARK. DARE. EXPERIMENT.
