Intriguing project(s) indeed! I quite like the idea of challenging your own creativity and the perception of others...
Very inspiring to me. I'm not an artist but I do love the small things that change people's perspectives.
Some great tips on idea generation and activation.

Interactive Artist & Freelance Creative

I'm a San Francisco-based Interactive Artist who creates social projects that are culturally disruptive and radically engaging.

I love sharing my thoughts, ideas, and experiences with others — having taught a Creative Ideas course for three quarters at Miami Ad School, a semester-long course called “Culture Jamming” at California College of the Arts, and recently given a talk on the value of personal projects.

I'm an expert at creating projects that impact culture, and have done this with Snail Mail My Email (which was published into a book), Occupy GeorgeSelfless PortraitsHack Marriage, and many more. My work has exhibited internationally, been featured in CNNTIMEWall Street JournalFast Company, and Juxtapoz, and I was recently recognized as an Art Directors Club Young Gun X and Forbes 30 Under 30. I've also received multiple Vimeo Staff Picks for pieces like Howard's Farm.

I freelance in the creative industry for companies including Facebook, Wieden + Kennedy, 72 & Sunny, Deutsch, Venables Bell & Partners, BBDO, and more.
