OnBeing Podcast with Krista Tippett. February 25 2016 https://onbeing.org/programs/robin-wall-kimmerer-the-intelligence-of-plants/ Braiding Sweetgrass written by Robin Wall Kimmerer A New Kind of Land Acknowledgement, Ange Loft, Candice Hopkins, IIana Shamoon and Lindsay Nixon in conversation https://canadianart.ca/features/a-new-kind-of-land-acknowledgement/ Reflection What touched me the most was Tanya's performance art. I was in tears while watching it. Her suits take on a warm, almost skin tone coloured, like the other projects she made, inclusive, harmless, warm, and peaceful. Interpreted pain with love, embrace wound with hug, I think this might be one of the greatest emotions in the world. For the Land Acknowledgement piece, the artists recreated the historical event through modern art perform, using symbols, patterns, body movements and acting skills which are other kinds of “languages” we use to communicate in modern world. I would rather call them translators, they decode something with languages we understand, and did a great job raising awareness of indigenous cultures. The podcast with Robin Wall Kimmerer on her non-traditional view of botanical aesthetics, as an environmental biologist, is very interesting. I was deeply touched by her beautiful metaphor, perhaps this is a culture thing. She talked about how indigenous people see everything as alive and has third person names for them. I was thinking we had something similar in Chinese culture. We use different characters to call animals, female human, male human, gods, and other lifeless objects, while they have the same pronunciation. As human beings we should maintain respect and humility to the earth, which people in the past did much better than we do now. “In the dance of the giveaway, remember that the earth is a gift we must pass on just as it came to us. When we forget, the dances we’ll need will be for mourning, for the passing of polar bears, the silence of cranes, for the death of rivers, and the memory of snow.”(Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass) Pictures I took inspired from reading Braiding Sweetgrass photography experience reflection As the water spread over the backs of her feet, she felt the biting cold, the rough surface of the rock is rubbing against her skin. After standing for a long time, she gradually stopped feeling cold and even got a little warm。 We were amazed at how quickly the human body adapts to the nature.

Decanonization as Method: A Reflection in Three Acts. (originally published in Mousse Magazine #58, April–May 2017) Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung http://moussemagazine.it/the-globalized-museum-bonaventure-soh-bejeng-ndikung-documenta-14-2017/ Nicholas Galanin "Shadow on the Land" The three artists their own unique methods of delivering their art pieces/messages. Starting with Nicholas Galanin, his art installation which is a burial site in the shape of the shadow of the white colonialist, Captain James Cook, located in Sydney, Hyde Park. In my opinion, it conveys his message in a way that is more abstract, it is not presented as-is but rather it required the spectators to reflect upon him/herself. Of course, there are traces of hints of the general direction which he wanted to steer to. For example, in one of the mounds there is a board with “bush burial” which is a reference to a painting portraying “the white heroism” that is quite inaccurate in a sense lacks historical truth. In the light of showing the cruelty and the ruthlessness of the colonialists I think it is doing a wonderful job that anyone who comes from a background where their country had a history of being colonized can find their own interpretation of what the piece means. I would say his method of delivery is effective, the core message is clear and there are room for interpretations John Akomagrah For the works done by John Akomfrah, his art piece is more straight forward. they are comprised, most of the time, a series of video pieces that are stitched together and presented in a multiple screens format. There is also post-editing involved which helps to communicate with the audience, as he said he is more like a choreographer than a creator. Most of his work stems from his background as a Ghanaian immigrant. After his realization that the art, in a general sense, which most people has seen are most likely euro centric. The discomfort as he felt like he is out-of-place in the culture results in he wanted more The

Transcript: Creative Mind Map By Paris Lin My creative mind map Let's dive in! I went through three materials The Intelligence of Plants with Robin Kimmerer Wall. OnBeing Podcast with Krista Tippett. February 25 2016, A New Kind of Land Acknowledgement, Ange Loft, Candice Hopkins, IIana Shamoon and Lindsay Nixon in conversation , and The Green Line, Francis Alys. WEEK 1 The Intelligence of Plants with Robin Kimmerer Wall I like the word that mentioned in the discussion that “So living beings would all be animate, all living beings, all living beings. anything that was alive in the Potawatomi language(Kimmerer, 2016).” To be “alive” is not to humanize things, or to judge them from a human standard. Everything has a life, which means that they all have the value of being respected and cherished. I learned a lot about the ethnic stories and experiences of the First Nations as I began to learn about Canadian culture. I think the story of their mouth is very interesting and I really like the respect and continuity of their culture from the Canadian people. The new kind of land acknowledgement combines art and the respect to their loving nations. As the article said, land acknowledgement should not be words only. It should combing symbols and something representative. A New Kind of Land Acknowledgement The Green Line Francis he did a very simple and specific action. He extended the two-dimensional line on the map to the reality and stitched it together, making us feel the existence of this line more practically. In the process of carrying out this artistic act, we can see the scenery along this green line and a realistic space formed by this green line. There are outposts, roads, tracks, mountains...and so on. Interestingly, along the way we can notice the peace brought by the green line which represents the armistice at this moment. The current green line is more of a trail of past conflicts and resentments than a clear border. Reflections on materials of John Akomfrah and Heba y. Amin WEEK 2 1. In the week assigned materials, artist John Akomfrah used movies and video installations to express their ideas. He is trying to show and recreate the scene that used to happen in history through old videos, sounds recording, placing video installations side by side to make contrasts, to let audiences to see and think about it. Both Heba y. Amin and John Akomfrah’s artworks are combing political problem with art. They do research and explore the best way to reach their approaches. 2. They visualized the problem and let people to realize, think, and do something (or learn something). I think it is meaningful to make politics artistic. In their work, art is the media that help decrease the distance between people and politic problems. They help people to find out and think about how politics are close and connected to their lives. I think it is effective. Heba y. Amin and John Akomfrah’s artworks are like taking out a politic problem with all the evidence in front of people and says: “Here’s the problem, let’s fix it.”亲民 化 更好地传播，新的形势 新的拓展 3. Artists were affected by the museums and connect their own experience with these museum artworks. They stand in the perspective of being in the middle of the historical events to convey to audience. On the other hand, they also trying to make the audience be in the historical event. Reflection of Next for more In the article, global should be including every corner, every minority in the world. On the other hand, globalization can only be achieved if local development is good. Author deems “diversity” should be including minorities in gender, race, class, geography, and sexual orientation. They should not only be mentioned in a period. Instead, we should keep the diversity and make it long lasting. Keeping it long lasting is not just about eliminating stereotypes, it is about creating a truly diverse society, more profound meaning. "Diversity" should be exist in our daliy lives. Decanonization means to discover hidden people, ideas, groups, and give them fair treatment. We should fix the wrong histories and let the truth shown out. We should cancel all the unfair treatment between gender, race, class, geography, and sexual orientation. “The Globalized Museum? Decanonization as Method: A Reflection in Three Acts” Reflection on week's material After engaging with the materials, I think working with art is a period of constant struggle and exploration.It takes the right space and time to do it. We need to make art while remaining an artist.The creative process will not be easy, you may hit a wall, there may be unexpected developments, we need to be optimistic and vigilant. The work of art that is created needs to be disseminated effectively and expanded by others. On the other hand, in the process of creation, we should remain humble, accept the incompleteness of our own practice, and also accept the reactions and suggestions from different people in different times. The process of practice should be

Transcript: At the conclusion of this class: Some Closing Comments! (Something I never thought about before) (Something I thought was a really important topic) Be open to The first episode can be found here! (Ending may be NSFW!-warning) My Misconceptions about creativity: Music in advertising April 3, 2014 MORE DIVERGENCE Through the generation and testing of hypothesis, it is possible to discover trends and correlations between different elements of creativity. By thinking of creativity as a science as well as an art, suddenly there is so much more theory to understand, test and utilize. Frameworks and structure can actually enhance the creative process and does not have to be juxtaposed with idea generation. By striving to understand WHY people respond certain way to different stimuli, we understand the fundamentals of how certain goals can be achieved and have more ammunition when the times comes to instigate creative thinking. This was a pretty interesting topic. So interesting in fact that I had an hour conversation with all 5 of my roommates (science, math and accounting students) about it and they all expressed interest in being in this class. The idea that through hypothesis generation and the fulfilling or denial of expectations, music can influence the way we think is crazy. It makes alot of sense, but it is definitely something that has never crossed my mind, and prompted my desire to be more inquisitive. The relationship between art, music, design, framing, and general direction with the way creative projects are perceived is intrinsically interesting, as it blurs the line between cognitive sciences, business and art. This is a topic I will also explore in depth going forwards. FOR: BU492 Glen Drummond V2.0 Revamp Some Reflections The connection between marketing and creativity is still a hard one to pin down. With the rise of social media, better production technologies and saturation of crazy ideas, it only becomes harder and harder to make marketing campaigns stand out with only creativity. . Validity vs. Reliability Prior to this class:  I want to thank you again for making this class such a pleasure to attend every week. Through the class discussions and content I was able to learn many things about creative thinking, and it challenged and changed many perceptions I had coming in to the class. Who knows! Maybe our paths will cross again in the future! It is a small world after all. Marketing and Creativtiy Creativity is all about exposure to new ideas and experience. There should be no formal structure to creativity as structure works against the concept of creative thinking and limits ideas. Creativity cannot be quantified, bottled up or represented by theory, it is an intangible notion that some people have and some people don't. After seeing the feedback from my blog post about the role of a devils advocate, I now realize I am kind of a pessimistic person. Is it wrong to say I sometimes enjoy poking holes in ideas? The thinking hats process we touched on in class seems like a much more structured way to brainstorm. In my past ways I would write off dumb ideas as dumb ideas, but sometimes they can end up working just with some minor adjustments. Look at Twitter.. When I first heard of Twitter I thought it was dumb and would never take off.. but surprise. I know nothing. All ideas need a bit of sunshine before it is subjected to the Colosseum to face the incumbents. According to the profiling exercise in class I am a Generator type. This only highlights the importance of an open mind when it comes to brainstorming. . Creative Mind Map < It appears I am a black hat.. Yichen He As a "creative" individual I never had high regard for reliable testing methods. Numbers and data are for those boring stogy people doing analytic work, creative insight can't be quantified. But since then I have come to a temporary point of reconciliation - through testing hypothesis and analyzing results, we may be able to slowly connect different areas of qualitative traits to quantifiable measures. With the increase in computing power, can this be achieved? A critical issue we must deal with on our quest for creativity is setting benchmarks so we know how close we are in achieving our goals. And there lies another crucial aspect of quantitative metrics in reporting. When it came to creative thinking, my old process was to simply come up with a bunch of ideas, pick the best and roll with it. The final idea would have gone through multiple iterations before it is finalized. It is interesting this process has been identified as the Diverge, Converge, Repeat theory. While in past experiences groups are wary of diverging again after the initial idea brainstorming process for the fear of scope creep. However it is interesting to note that both according to this theory and my personal experience, creativity does tend to flourish when there are multiple cycles of the process, as the additional divergence steps allow for
