This exercise is from the book “Conceptual Blockbusting: A Guide to Better Ideas” by engineer James Adams. Employing unconventional exercises and other interactive elements, Adams shows individuals, teams, and organizations how to overcome these blocks, embrace alternative ways of thinking about complex problems, and celebrate the joy of creativity.
The exercise was introduced to me by professor of Art Education Charles Garoian at the workshop I organised “Performance Art, Exercises and Untamed Education” at the Art Academy, Tromsø.
