Hele Verden Er Et Noteark

Den amerikanske kunstneren Christian Marclay utførte i 1996 et kunstprosjekt hvor han hengte opp noteark rundt om på bygninger og toaletter i Berlin. Etter notearkene hadde hengt en stund, skriblet på og revet i stykker av vær og vind, ble de dokumentert og samlet. Hva som enn var på notearkene ble siden fremført av musikere i et galleri.

(Husk penn!)


Over a period of time in 1996, the American artist Christian Marclay hung up empty notational sheets in buildings and restrooms in Berlin. After letting them hang for a while to be scribbled on and torn apart by wind and weather, the sheets were documented and collected. Whatever was on the notational sheets was performed by musicians in a gallery.

Isomorphia by Steve Jobs

If there's one thing that distinguishes highly creative people from others, it's the ability to see possibilities where other don't -- or, in other words, vision. Many great artists and writers have said that creativity is simply the ability to connect the dots that others might never think to connect.
In the words of Steve Jobs:
"Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things."
