10 paradox statements of creative people
December 15, 2008, 5:50 pm
Filed under: Uncategorized

Berikut ini adalah 10 sikap paradoks orang kreatif yang dinyatakan oleh Mihaly:

1. Creative people have a great deal of physical energy, but they’re also often quiet and at rest.

Saya sendiri kurang setuju dengan statement tersebut, karena menurut saya creative people always have a great deal of physical energy anytime, anywhere!!

Bahkan ketika mereka beristirahatpun, pikiran dan hati mereka terus mengolah kreativitas dengan cara dan bahasanya tersendiri. Cara dan bahasa tersebut nantinya akan mempengaruhi aktivitas mereka ketika mereka selesai beristirahat.

2. Creative people tend to be smart yet naive at the same time.

Kalau statement ini, saya sangat setuju. Memang terkadang hal-hal yang diakatakan extraordinary datangnya ketika seseorang sedang berpikir bodoh atau bermimpi. Dan hal tersebut yang terkadang tidak disadari dan dianggap remeh oleh orang-orang.  

3. Creative people combine playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility.

Menurut saya statement ini kurang jelas mendefinisikan kalimatnya. Terutama untuk kata disiplin. Menurut saya disiplin dalam hal berpikir sangatlah dilarang!! Untuk menjadi kreatif kita tidak boleh mempunya batasan-batasan dalam berpikir. Namun jika yang dimaksud disiplin disiplin disini adalah disiplin dalam berkarya. Saya sangat setuju…

4. Creative people alternate between imagination and fantasy, and a rooted sense of reality.

I cannot agree more to this statement. Like I said before, NO LIMITS FOR THINKING!!

5. Creative people trend to be both extroverted and introverted.

Hmmm…interesting. But I think the only reason this person become introvert is because this person has no courage to become extrovert yet.

6. Creative people are humble and proud at the same time.

Setuju! Sifat paradox inilah yang akhirnya bisa membawa mereka menjadi maju. Ketika seseorang tahu kapan dirinya harus bangga dan kapan dirinya harus merendah, berarti orang tersebut sudah tahu bagaimana memposisikan jiwa dan raga orang tersebut dimata dunia.

7. Creative people, to an extent, escape rigid gender role stereotyping.

Yah saya rasa hal ini tidak perlu diragukan lagi. Karena batasan-batasan ini lah yang nantinya akan menghambat pola hidup kreatif kita. Sedangkan orang kreatif hidup tanpa batasan pemikiran.

8. Creative people are both rebellious and conservative.

I love this statement!! Apalagi jika orang tersebut bisa memiliki otak pemikiran pemberontak di dalam jiwa yang konservatif. Supaya tidak lupa diri. hahaha

9. Most creative people are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well.

Not exactly paradox I think. Orang yang passionate dalam melakukan suatu hal tidak selalu objektif bukan??

10. Creative people’s openness and sensitivity often exposes them to suffering and pain, yet also to a great deal of enjoyment.

Setuju!  I even think that they actually enjoy their suffering and their pain…ironically. They just too ashamed to admit it…



the secret that told by grandma to the wolf before she died
October 19, 2008, 4:43 pm
Filed under: Uncategorized

who will think that grandma told the wolf a secret before she died?

well, if she really did, a lot of people would died to know that.

unfortunately, the wolf is the only person that know that secret. and he died already.

Some of us maybe wonder what the secret is.

but for me, i wonder what is the most creative buildings in the world?

The Basket Building (United States)

What started out as a dream by Dave Longaberger, Founder of The Longaberger Company, has been built Home Office into a giant basket to house the entire corporate offices of the company. Dave believed the idea was one of his best and would draw attention to the company, while simultaneously helping to build our brand. However, when he started spreading the idea of building a Home Office that was really a basket, he found that most people just thought that Dave was making a joke as Dave was a notorious practical joker. Not only did the bankers, architects and construction companies not take Dave seriously, neither did many of the employees who worked for The Longaberger Company, but Dave persevered. The dream was achieved on December 17, 1997 when the Home Office that is designed to resemble a basket finally opened for business.

The Dancing House (Czech Republic)

The Dancing House is the nickname given to an office building in downtown Prague, Czech Republic. It was designed by Croatian-born Czech architect Vlado Milunic in co-operation with Canadian architect Frank Gehry on a vacant riverfront plot (where the previous building had been destroyed during the Bombing of Prague in 1945). The construction started in 1994 and was finished in 1996.
The very non-traditional design was controversial at the time. Czech president Vaclav Havel, who lived for decades next to the site, had supported it, hoping that the building would become a center of cultural activity. Originally named Fred and Ginger (after Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers – the house vaguely resembles a pair of dancers) the house stands out among the Neo-Baroque, Neo-Gothic and Art Nouveau buildings for which Prague is famous.

On the roof is a French restaurant with magnificent views of the city. The building’s other tenants include several multinational firms. (The plans for a cultural center were not realized.) Because it is situated next to a very busy road it depends on forced air circulation, making the interior somewhat less pleasant for its occupants.

The Piano House (China)

This unique piano house was built recently in An Hui Province, China. Inside of the violin is the escalator to the building. The building displays various city plans and development prospects in an effort to draw interest into the recently developed area.

Kansas City Library (United States)

Kansas City Library has one seriously cool façade. Local residents were asked to nominate influential books that represent kansas city, humungous versions of the winning nominations were then used as the exterior of the library car-park.

The Robot Building (Thailand)

The Robot Building, located in the Sathorn business district of Bangkok, Thailand, houses United Overseas Bank’s Bangkok headquarters. It was designed for the Bank of Asia by Sumet Jumsai to reflect the computerization of banking; its architecture is a reaction against neoclassical and high-tech postmodern architecture.

The building’s features, such as progressively receding walls, antennae, and eyes, contribute to its robotic appearance and to its practical function. Completed in 1986, the building is one of the last examples of modern architecture in Bangkok and has garnered international critical acclaim.

The Blue Building (Netherlands)

The borough of Delfshaven, Rotterdam, asked Schildersbedrijf N&F Hijnen to come up with a plan for a block of derelict buildings, which will eventually be demolished. The agreement with the neighbourhood is that the block will remain blue as long as there isn’t a new plan for the area.

This was once one of the most unseen blocks of houses in Rotterdam, and by applying a layer of only 2 micron of blue paint onto it, it became Rotterdam’s most photographed one.

The Astra House (Germany)

The strange building is actually a brewery in Hamburg, Germany. The floors can move up or down on it’s skinny column core. As of now, the unique building has been destroyed. One of it’s more famous beer brands was recently bought by a big refreshment corporation. And that beer brand was called Astra.

The Crooked House (Poland)

Polish architect of the Crooked House, Szotynscy Zaleski, was inspired by the fairytale illustrations of Jan Marcin Szancer and the drawings of the Swedish artist and Sopot resident Per Dahlberg. The most photographed building in Poland, the 4,000 square meter house is located in Rezydent shopping center in Sopot, Poland.

Sam Kee Building: six feet deep, world’s thinnest (Canada)

The Sam Kee building is situated at 8 West Pender Street. It runs from the corner of Pender and Carral to the lane at the halfway point of the block. It is two storeys tall and 1.5 meters (six feet) deep. The story behind the building is as exotic as the structure with several intriguing twists and turns included in its telling. The City of Vancouver provided the original owner, Chang Toy, with a challenge when it expropriated all but two meters of his property as part of an expansion of Pender Street. No compensation was provided to its owner who was left with what most believed to be a useless property. In a creative turn of events fuelled by spite and some say a bet an architect was hired to design a building to fit the remaining property. The rest is history in more ways than one.

This building was home to 13 businesses at one time. It was the only place in Chinatown for residents to enjoy hot baths. There is a tunnel beneath the building that was used as an escape route from raids on Opium dens situated on neighbouring Shanghai Alley. The building is also fronted by the only remaining glass sidewalk in Chinatown. As part of the ongoing history of this structure, issues still arise between the owners and the city with respect to encroachment and overhangs. In spite of each side having an element of right it seems to boil down to the proverbial “tit for tat”. It makes for an interesting study in civics.



the girl needs a room in propeller island city lodge

Filed under: Uncategorized

don’t you think that the girl has through enough tragedy in her life?

she lost her grandma, her mother’s trust, and almost lost her life…

and the most important thing is she lost her red hood.

her lovely limited chic red hood.

She has nothing else to wear to cover her hair. And it’s so not her

No more popular name. She is just a girl right now. without a red hood.

So tragic.

So she definitly needs a room in Propeller Island City Lodge to relieve her stress. And so do we.

everbody needs to go there. Everybody needs to see the merge of art, creativity implementation and convinience.

Associated with a record producer and songwriting studio (Propeller Island GmbH), this hotel occupies three high-ceilinged floors of an old-fashioned apartment house originally built in the 1880s. Each of the guest rooms is radically different in its decor and theme, and each may delight or appall you with its quirks.

Check out these crazy model and design rooms

propeller island – this means aesthetic sensation for the eye and the ear. propeller island is a pseudonym used by the german artist Lars Stroschen to publish his audio-visual creations. unlimited diversity, repeating nothing and copying nothing are the guiding principles here.

This hotel is a habitable work of art in the heart of berlin, whose wealth of ideas never fails to attract everyone into its gravitational field and to continue inspiring guests long afterwards. a magnet for creative individuals, those weary of consumption, those who see things differently, philosophers and seekers of perspective and vision. frequented by personalities from around the globe, this vision machine is a much-desired shooting site for photo sessions and video clips.

 

 

no, this is not one of those trendy designer hotels…

it is more like a private planet which has evolved in unique synchronicity with the tastes of its inventor. here, nothing has been bought, every single construction is a singular novelty, everything is authentic and everything has its own special function – nothing is fake, nothing is mere decoration. no plastic and no papier-mâché.
there is not just colourfulness behind these walls, but pure composition in vivid colours. the CITY LODGE is intensive but subtle, ironic but coy, an all-round work of art, including its resident sound-sculptures. whoever utilises the simple mechanical constructions here, really sees and knows what he/she is doing – a winking and welcoming alternative in a world of silicium cells. characteristically, this contrast programme to virtual and cyber spheres was conceived by someone who otherwise does everything by computer…
whoever desires freedom can find perennial inspiration here. truly. the unfolding mental universe of our guests is the joy of the creator.

 

*Do you know what happen to the girl after she got home from stayed in Propeller Island hotel?

She has her confidence again. Now, she can go to everywhere she want without any haunted feeling.

She found her new hood. Like this…

 

And the best thing is, she got her new nickname.

Little leopard riding hood. GOOD JOB GIRL!

Try it. And see how those rooms change you…

the wolf should’ve learned from Michel Gondry

What happen to girl after “the wolf’s trap” incident?

Well, i can imagine that she will be like a very traumatic person. Maybe she will never go to the forest anymore for the rest of her life. Or maybe she will be like a very “full of revenge” person. She will hunt every wolf in this town, then chop their body and give it to poor people so they can eat it.

POOR GIRL…

If i were her, i will call Lacuna Inc. and ask Dr. Howard Mierzwiak to erase the memory of the wolf from my mind. And i will feel free from wolf’s terror in my mind.

 

Dr. Mierzwiak’s machine erased Joel Barish’s (Jim Carrey) memory

 

But it is actually remind me of the movie where Lacuna Inc. came from. The movie called Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind. It is a very good movie, with great actors and absolutely great director.

You must wonder who is the great man behind this successful? Who is the great director behind this Oscar winner movie?

Well, the answer is Michel Gondry.

Michel Gondry was born in May 8, 1963 in Versailles, France. His career as a filmmaker began with creating music videos for the French rock band Oui Oui, in which he also served as a drummer. The style of his videos for Oui Oui caught the attention of music artist Björk, who asked him to direct the video for her song “Human Behaviour”. The collaboration proved long-lasting, with Gondry directing a total of seven music videos for Björk. Other artists who have collaborated with Gondry on more than one occasion include Daft Punk, The White Stripes, The Chemical Brothers, The Vines, Steriogram, Radiohead, and Beck. Gondry has also created numerous television commercials. He pioneered the “bullet time” technique later adapted in The Matrix, notably in his “Like a Rolling Stone” video for the Rolling Stones and a 1998 commercial for Smirnoff vodka, as well as directing a trio of inventive holiday-themed advertisements for clothing retailer Gap, Incorporated.

 

Michel Gondry

 

Gondry still did many video clips of many hippest bands around. Of course, it was only a matter of time before Gondry moved into feature-film territory, and with the 2002 comedy Human Nature, he did just that. Though the Charlie Kaufman-scripted film did indeed translate his quirky and unique visual world onto the large screen with its original tale of a hirsute nature girl who forms a tentative bond with a wild child who is being schooled in social skills by a repressed scientist, Human Nature ultimately proved a bit too odd for mass consumption and barely scored a blip on the box-office radar. Those who were familiar with Gondry’s work, however, warmly and openly embraced the film for the most part, and it wasn’t long before the director was eying scripts for his sophomore feature. In 2004, he once again teamed with Charlie Kaufman, this time for the tale of a troubled couple who have their memories of each other erased after a traumatic breakup in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. The film found Gondry collaborating with an all-star cast that included the likes of Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet, Kirsten Dunst, and Elijah Wood. A wildly creative and hauntingly humorous endeavor which proved a sizable indie hit among filmgoers looking to experience a new twist on the modern romantic fable, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind more than made up for any previous disappointment of Human Nature. When it came time to hand out the coveted Oscars at the 2005 Academy Awards, Gondry found himself sharing a Best Original Screenplay award with co-screenwriters Kaufman and Pierre Bismuth.

 

The Famous Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind

Human Nature

After joining forces with famed comic Dave Chappelle the following year for the high-energy hybrid music/concert documentary Dave Chappelle’s Block Party, Gondry soon returned to the realms of the fantastic with The Science of Sleep — a surreal journey into the vivid imagination of a lonely dreamer that seemed something of a celluliod sibling to Eternal Sunshine.

Of course, any fan of Gondry knows that he has never been a director inclined to rest on his laurels, and just two weeks before The Science of Sleep hit stateside theaters, Gondry was already busy shooting his next feature, Be Kind Rewind — an unhinged comedy concerning a junkyard worker (Jack Black) whose magnitized brain erases every movie in his best friend’s video store. Subsequently threatened with the loss of the store’s sole customer — an elderly woman showing signs of dementia — as a result of the mishap, the well-intending junkman and his determined pal make a desperate bid to please the loyal patron by reinacting scenes from a variety of high-profile Hollywood hits.

 

Be Kind Rewind

I choose him as the most creative creature in the entire planet because Michel Gondry’s age is deceiving, however: his works are marked with a child-like explorative eye. Like old-school hip-hop Gondry’s films are his playground. He tells stories about people and their lives while questioning our definitions of reality. His characters are honest and human and his worlds playfully reflect the interaction between nature, society, and the mind. He could be very mature and at the same time very childish in create a beautiful art project.

But for me i don’t call it art.

It’s the world we live in.

“I always hated pretentious commercials and videos before I started directing, not following the typical and saying that people are all fashion. It has always been my goal to make people feel alright when they watch my work.” – Michel Gondry
