Creativity connects us everywhere. The interesting idea is: can we take the creativity that we work with and make it work in a different context? Creativity is about interdependence, interconnectedness. I see myself in the other. My surrounding reflects me, and this means the surrounding carries the idea. Creativity is not in an object but way more in the consequences of it. Creativity is about how we feel connected in our world. Cooking or just even tidying can be a creative act that you can learn something from. I propose to gather artist around that idea by doing a simple act, taking a photography of their kitchen and write down a meal that they had that day. A physical edition will be made (an Artist cookbook) gathering recipe and photography.

What is conceptual art?
It radically shifts from things we recognize to representation, abstraction, and then to information, to indexes. – something is in part an index, since including signs and notational systems. The main objective is that it’s not purely visual – or retinal- ‘seen by the eye’. It’s reductive in the economy of means. [Born in early avant-garde and minimalist, concepts open on a limitless possibility and chain of signifiers]. The radical was established, as the ‘root’ or the irreducible. Now we multiply those roots. We rethink. This is the role of the curator moving identities and re-reading the past, inventing precursors.

Especially with conceptual art practices, there is no discernible object but an expressive distancing, our ‘identity’, in which we all have a place in making and consuming, neither are all conceptual artists. It is not rational and intellectual – the conceptual artists are more like mystics, not rationalists, they conceive beyond restrictions, where technology is pervasive, and knowledge arrives suddenly on google, in mass, or excess…but one could find all these in the spectator’s limitless individuation or demise. There’s also romantic conceptualism, that is both effective and idea. Romance affects us all in our hopes for a horizon of possibility, of freedom, through technology. We are all curators of our objects and tastes.”
Peter Lewis, “Leftovers of Curating” (/seconds.com, edition 15).

Everyone as the capacity to be creative, we all do things in our lives that are artistic (realizing it or not). Art is everywhere, surrounding us. In a temporality call as the art of the ordinary life. We all are exceedingly creative; the question is: are we all Artist, or perhaps to be more specific, are we taking advantage of the opportunities in our day to day lives when we had to exercise our creative potential. 
There is the idea of a Romantic and seductive conceptualism, working both in levels of the effect and the idea. Romance is an effect, reflecting our hopes of possibilities and freedom. We experience it through the technological artifact. “We are curators of our objects and taste.” How does that curation of ordinary life be possible? It is an ongoing conversation that reflects the potentiality of Art…In the Game of art of the everyday life, and curating the daily lives, Children are the best, we have to struggle to stay that way. Creativity connects us everywhere. The interesting idea is Can we take the creativity that we work with and make it work in a different context? Creativity is about interdependence, interconnectedness. I see myself in the other, my surrounding reflects me, this means the surrounding carries the idea. Creativity is not in an object but way more in the consequences of it. Creativity is about how we feel connected in our world.
Gardening or just even tidying can be a creative act that you can learn something from. Creativity is something that happens or doesn’t. Aspiring to be creative is a way of living, it can find possibilities in everything and wandering around the world with our mind and eyes open. The idea of the Flaneur is what make creative possibilities available.   
From the Flaneur, artist embodied a city, a place of transit for most of them. Here what is important is the creation of a dialogue in a certain time in a particular place. Response to the conversation that a city imposes to one and other.

“The concept of the everyday was formed in opposition to the concept of labor, just as the concept of consumer activity was formed in opposition the concept of social dynamism.”
