Beautiful things inspire me.
There are moments, days, even weeks when I feel lost and un-creative. It’s as if I’m missing a piece — that last, lost piece of the puzzle that completes me.
Then I see it, that something different, that something that is maybe strange to look at, or that is just oddly beautiful.
This animated short film by Andrey Shuskov, entitled Invention of Love, was one of those strange beautiful things that hit the spot. I remember first seeing this video a little over a year ago, when I happened to be feeling stuck in a rut with my life.
It may not have directly affected what art works and life choices I made soon after, as I’m sure I had watched at least 20 or so other videos while working that day, but something happened — my eyes had seen something new.
