Banksy shaking up routines


This is a cool video from the innovative design firm Frog Design.  In the vid Dave Hoffer shares some examples of “disruptive realism” on the street and how it might cause people to get unstuck from rigid thought patterns.  Disruptive realism is like experiencing something unexpected that causes you to think in new ways.  This is relevant to creativity because one thing that holds us back from relevant creative solutions is when we keep looking at the world the same old way. We need to seek out things that ‘jar’ our perspective so fresh ideas and new creative connections can be built.
