Left Brain vs Right Brain

The "Right Brain" Creative side feeds content to the "Left Brain" the analytical side so that it can be executed properly. Successful implementation of an idea inspires more ideas and the circle continues. It's not so important that you are either right brain or left brain. What is important is the understanding that one needs the other to innovate and succeed.

Creative Courage Workshop at American Institute of Architects Las Vegas Chapter Design Conferance.

These are photos of a workshop I did on Friday September 20,2013. I had 3 hours so I was able to include a creative exercise. I gave 6 different groups 6 different props and had them come up with Names, What they do, and had them write a commercial spot for them. The result was very fun. You can see the video of one of them here:

A little taste of my workshop. Audience participation.

The Courage of Knowing by Alex Raffi

The wind pressed on a smile
We gather our intentions and wait
Our ticking life tips us off to the waiting calm of our discoveries. 
It's the noticing that escapes us
The silent scream of invention in our ear.
We are surrounded by it in its silken blackness.
Slightly waving in the breeze.
Light peeks between the drapes. 
Now... Now... Now...
A soft slow flash of knowing.
There and gone again. 
But always there, waiting.
We stretch and reach for it from our seats.
We fail and learn and live with the courage of knowing
And that is enough, for now.
