Style Material Form


As the cliche goes, your only limit is your imagination. Well, this can seem quite limiting at times when you’re not feeling very imaginative. I made this little “Inspiration Generator” to help spawn ideas and promote diagonal thinking. It creates a randomly generated phrase from three sets of words: styles, materials, and forms. In the realm of Oblique Strategies, it’s also like an automatic Exquisite Corpse for finding artistic inspiration. While you might not want to actually create a “Classical garbage caricature” or an “Existential mandolin diorama,” this tool may at least help clear out some of your creative cobwebs.
