The Co-Creative Sandbox
June 11, 2017
“… and there I stood in silence, gazing out to the millions of lights illuminating the mountain side, finding it unfathomable. unthinkable. impossible. that one mind could conceive all of this.”
We have built everything that exists to date as a result of our inclination to think, create and play.
Yet, more often than not, we see the world, nature and one another as an ultimate struggle for conquest. Rarely instead, do we realize that each member of humanity has, and will continue to, co-author every physical building, sculpture and landscape that surrounds us everyday.
A painter does not paint without a mark of impression made from another human experience. The business owner does not operate without a customer to serve. The construction worker cannot construct buildings without persons to inhabit them
In truth the thrill of being human imbues us with the creative itch to architect and impact one another’s life experience as often as we can. If only to speak about my own motivations and beliefs of human nature,
There is a deep desire among all us to bring something novel into reality that makes someone else’s experience, struggle or time here just a bit better.
Leaving one to wonder, what else a world and a story of humanity might look like if we all realized that we were authoring it together.
