Ivy League creative exercises

One day project (Michael Bierut, Yale): “There’s only one rule, it has to be done by 5:00.” (via #The100DayProject)

100 day project (Michael Bierut, Yale): “Do a [creative] operation that you are capable of repeating every day… The only restrictions on the operation you choose is that it must be repeated in some form every day, and that every iteration must be documented for eventual presentation. The medium is open, as is the final form of the presentation on the 100th day.” (via Design Observer)

Spend time with a work for 3 hours (Jennifer Roberts, Harvard): “Before doing any research in books or online, the student would first be expected to go to the Museum of Fine Arts, where it hangs, and spend three full hours looking at the painting, noting down his or her evolving observations as well as the questions and speculations that arise from those observations. The time span is explicitly designed to seem excessive.” (via Harvard Magazine)
