Today I want to talk to you about a very controversial subject to us all, most know it by the Word; Expression.

You see, expression is something very delicate to handle. If you are too direct with yours, you will be called “radical” and if you, on the other hand stay on your safe side, you will be referred to as “ordinary”.

When I go about my Art Direction and Editorial work, this is something that I usually struggle with. The aim is always to defy the norm, to captivate with new ideas, creative concepts, themes and tones that have not been dealt with before. If you don’t manage this, there will always be the dreaded comments of “unoriginal” or “has already been done before”. If you however manage to defy the norm, manage to come up with something new, something untested, something with tender ground… you will then truly be vulnerable to all sorts of feedback….

…and when you get good feedback….well that’s when the hard work truly begins.

I invite you all to ask for your own feedback. Explore your limits. Make peace with how unique you are.

 

Nuestra forma de expresarnos es lo que nos hace a cada uno verdaderamente únicos. Es lo que nos permite diferenciarnos de la norma. Muchas veces, cuando me planteo la preparación de las Editoriales en las que participo, el objetivo principal es conseguir lograr un resultado distinto. Tener una idea que no haya sido probada antes…que sea nueva a los ojos experimentados de las personas que observan mi trabajo…allí es cuándo podré tener verdaderamente opiniones con valor.

Cuando esas personas opinen y me ayuden a crecer.

Os invito a pedir opiniones sobre vosotros mismos a aquellos que os rodean.

No solamente a las personas que os quieren, que sabéis tienen únicamente cosas buenas que decir, sino a las personas que os harían salir de vuestra zona de confort.

Escucha con atención y humildad, allí es cuando verdaderamente podrás aprender a conocerte a tí mismo.

I found this video on Nowness. It is an expression platform, similar to Instagram but instead of having images, it is composed of mainly videos of artists, movies makers, people like you and I, with the common factor that they all try to send out a message for the rest of humanity. I have been following Nowness for quite some time now and seem to be captivated by it. It is an entire new form of sensibility that tries to exploit the feelings and sensations of each individual deep within. The thing with sound and movement added to imagery is that it can become an entire new 3-dimensional space that can captivate and engulf the viewer. Something similar to this happened to me when I came upon this video by utter casualty. I leave you to formulate your own opinions about the content but be warned, you watch under your own responsibility – to some it is inspirational, to others it may seem disturbing.

All credits at the end of the Video.

Encontré este vídeo en Nowness. Nowness es una plataforma de expresión libre parecida a Instagram pero formada principalmente por vídeos. Funciona un poco con una revista independiente. Los editores seleccionan una serie de vídeos de entre aquellos que se hacen más conocidos por otros medios o porque los mismos autores los envían para su publicación en caso de encajar con el estilo buscado en cada momento.

Lo increíble del sonido y el movimiento unido a la imagen es que consiguen crear un mini-universo paralelo que envuelve al público y lo hace dueño su propias sensaciones e impresiones creadas como consecuencia de lo entendido por los sentidos. Cada uno, por medio de lo que ve y oye es capaz de formar su propia opinión teniendo los vídeos siempre un objetivo común; el de impactar.

Te invito a observar el vídeo que viene a continuación pero quedas avisado/a, lo ves bajo tu propia responsabilidad.

    This design is incredible! You definitely know how to keep a reader
    amused. Between your wit and your videos,
    I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
    almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to
    say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
