Finding Creativity

August 12, 2009

What kind of person would think about using a tree as a musical instrument? I was amazed by what Diego Stocco was able to compose using an ordinary tree in his garden. Shuffling leaves, tapping bark and strumming and bowing on twigs. By considering the tree from a different perspective, Diego transformed it into something completely different.

Discovering new and unique ways to create something different from a common object or idea is a challenge for all creatives. We often set our own boundaries and expectations of what something “should” be, defined either by the project parameters or personal preferences. Overcoming these limitations opens up a world of new experiences and fresh inspiration for our work. What can YOU do with a tree?
