Where Science Meets Muse

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!

The Ultimate Surgical Instrument (my Phrasr example)

Screen Capture of the Animation of "The Ultimate Surgical Instrument" (my Phrasr example)

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…
