“If you kept changing the way people saw the world, you ended up changing the way you saw yourself.” ― Terry Pratchett, Going Postal
My name is Lidor Wyssocky. If I have to come up with a title for my passion, it would be Enabling Creativity.
Everything I’ve done in my professional and personal life was driven by the desire to inspire people to see the world differently. This vision drives me in my art, creating seempli, developing the c.os model, and helping individuals and teams ignite their creativity. Sometimes this goal takes the form of telling a specific story. At other times, it takes the form of providing people with tools to help them find and tell their own stories. Either way, nothing makes me more excited than seeing that spark in the eyes of people who realize they have seen something or thought of something other people didn’t. It’s like inviting people to my secret universe and sharing it with them. And once you’re in, it becomes your own.
I invite you to visit the following websites to explore my work further.
seempli™ is an open-ended game designed to ignite your imagination and creativity. It is based on the realization that any creative act, any original thought, and any meaningful idea result from mindfully observing the world around us and then building something new based on what we see and sense.
With that thought in mind, seempli includes a constantly growing collection of open-ended challenges, which all start with an invitation to observe the world and see things differently — through a magical pair of glasses.
seempli can be played alone or with a group of coworkers, friends, or family. It can is used for developing individual creative skills as well as group creativity and innovation. It can be used in workshops and team-building activities. seempli is also a perfect tool for teachers and educators to spark curiosity and creativity in the classroom.
The Creativity OS™ is what makes us creative. Our brain is already programmed with The Creativity OS from the day we are born. But as we grow up, most of us use it less and less, until we forget what we are capable of creating.
The Creativity OS™ is a model anyone can use to lead a creative life and apply their creative skills to any domain and context.
My book The Creativity OS™ is a work in progress. I decided to share it as it is being created and I invite you to read new chapters as they are being released at CreativityOS.com.
For years I’m photographing in the streets of Tel-Aviv – almost always in the same couple of ever-changing square miles. The urban streets never stop providing me raw materials for thoughts, emotions, and stories. Hundreds and thousands of people walk in these streets every day, failing to stop for a moment, explore and imagine, smile, and connect. I hope that my art will make some of them walk… a little bit… slower.
I’ve built Warehouse Zero to be a virtual space for displaying the stories I collect and the dreams I capture. The stories and dreams that are planted in the streets of the city and grow inside my head.
Following the launch of seempli, I was invited to write for The Creativity Post as a columnist. In my column, I try to inspire people to use the amazing creativity tools they already have in their possession: their senses and their mind.
