The day we disturbed that woman

by Ravi

To some, the music
To some, the racket
For me, the day
We made some noise.

Just a lil’ video i took in the music session the past week.

the art of remix

by Ravi

Some say that we are living in the age of creativity. In such an age we are bombared with thousands of new ideas and creations.  But it is not always necessary to invent something new to be creative. Creativity is also in re-inventing, remixing if you will, things and presenting the same thing in a different light. We see songs being remixed, good songs have been renditioned in dozens of different remixes from solo artists to big names in the music industry. The follow slides try to explore the remix culture through its roots.

This is an interesting mashup/remix of some TED talks which is meant to convey the message what TED is all about.

oozing creativity

by Ravi

One of the smaller forms of creativity that excites me is coming up with some new form of representation regularly.

This can be aptly described by the Google doodles phenomenon. Coming up with a new logo for each and every occasion is quite a creative challenge indeed.
As you can see from this collection of all the doodles so far, its quite an exhaustive list.

Another similar implementation was in the Bleach anime. For each and every episode of the anime, the screen which showed the episode number had a different design.

It quite an array of numbers but no two with the same design. That is quite a feat in my book.

Traditional tools to create non-traditional art

by Ravi

The definition of modern art has always been an enigma for me. Most of the time it is some form of art which i cannot comprehend.
But every now and then I come across something amazing. This is one of those things.  Larry is a sculptor with a creative eye. He uses steel not to create solid sculptures but shadows.
Using shadows as a creative medium he uses light and molded steel to create quite accurate art pieces.

The last images shows how he works.

Paper Tower

by Ravi

Paper Tower

We didnt take multiple shots of the tower building procedure and hence cannot give the details of how the structure was made. But from what you can see in this image we had a pyramid-ish base structure with 3 paper beams supporting the main central structure. We used paper knots to tie the beams and the base joints together.
