exercising our creativity | fork, knife or spoon

Sarah Wilkerson has been at it again and challenging us to stretch our creativity!

creativity exercise | fork, knife or spoon

I know – totally bizarre, right?  When I first read the challenge I was all “Um….okay….can’t wait to see how people approach this one”.  But then the sum total of my creativity could fit in a thimble so I should have known I would be amazed yet again by the creativity I’m surrounded with every day at Clickinmoms.

The exercise challenged members to find a way to make the ordinary extraordinary. Shoot a fork, knife,or spoon (or any combination thereof). The utensil(s) need not be your primary subject but should figure prominently in your artistic vision. Think about abstract art, work on your macro work, create a commentary about domestic life, take a utensil out of its normal environment and do something quirky … the sky’s the limit! Just get creative!

And so they did….here’s a few:

    Beautiful! Love how everyone thought outside the box. These would make great kitchen or dining room wall art. And thanks for calling my exercise "bizarre," K. Hahaha.

      My brother works in aneirtisvdg- we got drunk the other night I was disgusted when he said that his official role is that of ‘Racial Adjuster’. He goes through all the ads running in different countries and ‘cleanses’ hands faces for images the locals might not like on race/ethnic grounds.He said “if the ad’s running in the Far East, forget black faces- they all think black people are dirty monkeys over there!” His wife is black- how can he even look at himself in the mirror each morning?
