When Computers Fly | Creativity

When Computers Fly  | Creativity | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it

To make Discord (the second photo in his Personal Effects series), Prins started by taking apart an obsolete laptop piece by piece. Using almost 4,000 feet of fishing line, he hung every bit from his studio's ceiling, relying on sketches to arrange the bits so they looked as if the machine was exploding. 

Webgrrl's insight:

You might assume that Discord, Rutger Prins’s phenomenally detailed photograph of an exploding laptop, was constructed with software. You might also think the work was about blowing up old machinery. On both counts, you would be wrong... read and watch the VIDEO!!

"You know the cliché: You're out on the town, you're doing drugs, you're drinking, you're running on the walls, you're pissing on the fireplace. It’s a cliché. Often you run into artists who live that life—and at one point, you find out that they're not actually producing that much art. They're living the life of the artist without the work. | the atlantic (read more..)

Laura Hansen's curator insight, July 22, 2014 12:46 PM

Brilliance doesn't originate in the brain. Brilliance is flow of the universe through the mind effectively expressed. The mind is a vast network of connected thoughts in a field of limitless possibility. Each of us has a brain and a mind. And, we are neither. We are here to experience and become by using both.

 

During your day today and before you go to sleep, give your brain permission to rest. Give permission for your mind to rest. Allow yourself to rise out of your life for a while, resting in the arms of the universe -- the source of  yourself.

 

When you wake up, take a few minutes to experience the unity and power of the universe flowing through your rested mind and brain. I know it seems like a wild thing to ask, but you may find it easier than you expect.

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Enjoy your brilliance.
