It’s creative-play time again, and today we play with colors. No, we’re not going to draw anything, but we will use colors as a trigger for exploring, observing, and imaging.
Here we go!
Think of a company with a red logo. Write a short story that revolves around one of its products.
Make the red color (not just the product) present in the story. Have it play a role, not just as the color of one of the props, but as something that drives the plot forward — something the characters interact with.
Choose a yellow object you can pick and play with. Observe it carefully. Observe it for a while from different angles. Think of this object as a playground.
Now, place that object somewhere where it doesn’t belong. Pick a location that creates some tension with the object. The strangest the location is, the better.
Take a photo of the object in its new context. Make sure the tension is expressed in the image.
Watch the sea or the sky for 15 minutes.
Don’t do anything else. Don’t think about anything. Make sure to turn off all potential distractions. Allow yourself to drown in the blue. Watch it changing. Watch it staying still. Watch it interacting with other things.
