Phrasr as Brainstorming Tool
Posted by Plish on January 4, 2009
In a recent blog comment here, Corrine ended her comment with the following statement:
“Science arose from poetry… when times change the two can meet again on a higher level as friends.”
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Then later today I received an email from the Creative Skills Training Council of Asia Pacific/Australia Yahoo group, about Phrasr and the digital poetry of Rip Kungler.
It all came together for me…
Phrasr can be used as a great brainstorming tool!
I entered in some key words describing the ultimate surgical instrument and let Phrasr go to town!
The result was nothing short of cool and inspiring!
While I didn’t have any particular instrument in mind, the pictures were obtuse enough to stimulate some unique ideas. Ergonomic has some cool shapes to it that scream comfortable; The cat (pictured above) conjured up ideas of a retractable blade to prevent accidental cuts; The child viewing the animal from under the bubble: remote surgery and infection prevention to name a few.
Give it a try next time you need ideas and let me know how it worked for you!
It looks like Science and Poetry are meeting again as friends…
