My favourite film from childhood was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory with the brilliant Gene Wilder. I always loved how Mr Wilder was so passionate in the moments of complete absurdity.

罗恩阿拉姆
罗恩阿拉姆是一个设计师和建筑师。他是在皇家艺术学院的课程领导,当他对每个人的工作都非常垂头看,我很幸运能坐在房间里。我从中学到了很多东西。在RCA之前,我从SketchBooks工作,规划新想法,我仍然很多次,但在RCA课程上,我对探索材料和设备的实验产生了兴趣。我从罗恩那里学到的一件事是他对新想法和他以前没有看到的事情有一个无休虑的胃口。在他的工作和教学中,我看到他有一个似乎非常罕见的能力,将一个强大的概念与也看起来有趣的东西结合起来。要在一个物体中做两件事是非常困难的,但他一次又一次地完成它。


汤姆弗里德曼
I have the汤姆弗里德曼 关于优秀的美国艺术家汤姆弗里德曼的书。里面有一张他的艺术学院工作室墙壁的照片完全覆盖着他的肖像,景观和典型的艺术学生工作室的典型乐趣。我猜他正在做一些有抱负的艺术家,并制作他认为艺术家应该制造的东西,就像绘画肖像和东西一样。然后有一天他决定完全清理他的工作室并涂上墙壁,天花板和地板。他再次开始,只有自己和一个白色的房间。他买了一个节奏,把它放在白色的房间中间,在它勾选时坐下来思考它。这是来自这个空白起点,他发现了他的创造性的声音,并开始表达他的真实自我。


Poet Ranier Maria Rilke (4 December 1875 – 29 December 1926) : Letters to a young poet

这是我最近遇到的事情,一位年轻的有抱负的诗人派出了他的诗歌到Rilke要求反馈。Rilke在十个着名的信件中的第一个答案很有意思,它关于诗歌,但可以适用于任何形式的表达。这是一个发现的摘录这里.

‘You ask whether your verses are any good. You ask me. You have asked others before this. You send them to magazines. You compare them with other poems, and you are upset when certain editors reject your work. Now (since you have said you want my advice) I beg you to stop doing that sort of thing. You are looking outside, and that is what you should most avoid right now. No one can advise or help you – no one. There is only one thing you should do. Go into yourself. Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its roots into the very depths of your heart; confess to yourself whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write. This most of all: ask yourself in the most silent hour of your night: must I write? Dig into yourself for a deep answer. And if this answer rings out in assent, if you meet this solemn question with a strong, simple “I must”, then build your life in accordance with this necessity; your whole life, even into its humblest and most indifferent hour, must become a sign and witness to this impulse…..’


Leonard Cohen

When I have to think up a new idea I often turn to Cohen’s music to set the tone in my head. I discovered that he is one of the most witty, wise, and insightful men I have ever heard. Not only in his songs but also in his spoken word. I saw him perform in London at the age of 73 and hung on his every word, his voice so deep, aged with whiskey and smoke to a stage where when he talked to the audience it sounded like God was speaking down. I’m learning the guitar to play his songs and get a little closer to him.

Where do ideas come from is a common question people want to know. When asked where he got his ideas for his songs he replied ‘If I knew that I’d go there more often.’

不可能选择总结他的链接,所以我会挑选一些我最近听的人。

Here is a nice introduction to Leonard when he was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Particularly where he makes his speech by reading his fantastic lyrics.

Other singers I like are Tom Waits, Neil Young, Nick Cave, Nick Drake…

3 thoughts on “Inspiration”

  1. A piece of inspiration that I came across recently and would like to share.

    “An artist is a creature driven by demons. He doesn’t know why they choose him and he’s usually to busy to wonder why. He is completely amoral in that he will rob, borrow, beg or steal from anybody and everybody to get the work done.” – William Faulkner

  2. Thank u for the sharing. I was really fascinated by your works.And I felt very lucky to join your talk in Goldsmiths.

  3. Great work. I love this blog.
    I had a chance to see Leonard Cohen in Chicago, 2009.
    这是awesome. Most everyone there was older, in their 50’s. I am 30 but look like I am 21 and all these people kept asking me “what was I doing there”….it was enjoyable.

    I really like that quote from Ranier Maria Rilke as well.
