Creation As A Way Of Life

BY YVETTE EBER
@ VOL 2 ON FEB 29, 2016

Pastor and teacher Yvette Eber noticed that people underestimate the importance of their everyday tasks and actions to change the world. People seek creativity in other people’s adventures and do not realize that, as creations of God, creativity is within their power inside their existence, every day. Creation is not a cosmic event, but a way of life.

BY ULRICH DREES
@ VOL 5 ON SEP 04, 2016

Ein dunkler Wald mag auf Manche bedrohlich wirken - für Ulrich Drees beflügelt er jedoch seit frühester Kindheit die Kreativität. Die Vorstellung von Fabelwesen und deren Erlebnissen in diesen unbekannten Gegenden brachte ihn zu seiner Passion, dem Pen-and-paper Rollenspielen.

In "Welten fantastisch denken" erzählt er von der Faszination selbst erdachter Welten und seinen Plänen sein eigenes fantastisches Universum zu schaffen.

@ VOL 15 ON JUN 12, 2017

Illustrator Mike Driver gave this PechaKucha at Vol.15 of the London Series and had the audience "ooohing" and "aaahing" to his cute as animations (hang out but he's an illustrator!).

Analog Creation in a Digital World

“What you use influences what you create. I say, take that into consideration, try putting down the macbook, pull out a notebook, and get your Hemingway on.” In Analog Creation in a Digital World from Pechakucha Night Salt Lake City Vol. 16, Tyson Call, who is a writer, photographer, and motorcycle rider, talks about his story. For Tyson, however, sitting down to write on a computer creates too many distractions. Receiving a typewriter as a gift opened up a whole new perspective on the creative process and created a connection to the inner workings of other great writers like Hemmingway, Steinbeck, and Hunter S. Thompson. In this presentation, Tyson, muses on analog creation in a digital world and asks, "What have you done with a piece of paper? Nothing!"
