Welten fantastisch denken

@ 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.

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!"
