"EVERY CHILD IS AN ARTIST. THE PROBLEM IS HOW TO REMAIN AN ARTIST ONCE WE GROW UP." Pablo Picasso
The concept of CoMotion 2018 title sequence aims to demonstrate the connection between the creative process and the imaginative power of children. As creators, we follow a creative process that is not only mental, but also physical. We control all aspects of creation, engaging internally and externally, just as a child would naturally imagine a world to explore and adventure within. In this way, we are adult children embarking on an emotional and personal journey to find our destination; or in the case of design, our final product. This is shown through the creation of surreal, awe inspiring environments that would only appear in our imaginations. These places capture the processes of evolution and development to demonstrate the changing of ideas during the creative process. Ideas must take time to grow and develop to reach their finished form, much like nature has changed over time to become what it is today. We present how we adapt to thrive in these various environments to connect to the imaginative aspects of the creative process and the constant changes in nature and ideation. Through this project, we show the creation of these environments to convey how the constant improvement of ideas relate to evolution in these environments to result in the most effective final product. The idea of surrealism speaks to the theme of adult children, and to the fact that our imagination is a way for us to immerse ourselves in our creative process and ideation.
