Tell me why it’s so hard to be inspired these days?
As a graphical (merely a hobby) artist, i think the hardest part of the creative process is coming up with fresh ideas, and actually pulling through. I’ve touched down on most genres that require paper and a pencil, and it’s seemingly impossible to come up with new ideas.
So tell me, how do you, as a artist, musician, etc; find inspiration?
I’ve experimented a little with clay, canvas and wood, but most of the time i work with pencil amd paper.
I’ve heard of methods where you can “tap” into the right side of the brain, anyone know more about this?
My first impression of Oslo isn’t a very good one. When i was a infant i’ve been here, but i have no memory of it so i consider this to be my first impression. The walls are riddled with vandalism in the form of graffitti. I’m not talking about beautiful peices of street art, but shitty tags of some “crew” and a bunch of self proclaimed “words of wisdom.”
I perhaps have myself to blame for going out a monday at 22:15, but if you ever find your self at anker hotel, dont bother walking around at night in the nearby neighbourhood. I found 3 bars perhaps worth going in to. I took a beer at glade munken which was filled with early alchoholics and regret.
I called it a night when a was chased out of a neighbourhood by a group of men threatening to stab me.
Hopefully my stay here will prove differently, but so far i’d sum up oslo as a bunch of dead end streets, over priced and perhaps threatening.
In a century where we seek mass confirmation through social media we’ve developed a sort of twisted culture where people are more connected through electronical devices than through actual meetings. Ironic how i’m writing this from my phone.
Oh yes, we all take part in this hysteria, we succumb to the pressure quite easily. In fact if you’re reading this now you probably just finished checking your facebook, your instagram, your snapchat, and sit stupid with your phone, craving entertainment.
The question is how do we unwire? How do we break the trend? We neglect our children, our responsibilities, our desire to sleep, our sex drive. Our phones are the first and last things we see each day, i find it problematic.
