How to Make a Ricky Board: a Creative Exercise from David Lynch
Geege Schuman stashed this in Creativity
I don't understand from the article what a Ricky Board is useful for.
Do It: How To Make A Ricky Board (2012)
This board can be any size you want.
The proportions are dictated by four rows of five rickies.
Each ricky is, as nearly as possible, exactly the same as every other ricky.
The ricky can be an object or a flat image.
The thing about the rickies is you will see them change before your eyes because you will give each ricky a different name.
The names will be printed or written under each ricky. Twenty different names in all.
You will be amazed at the different personalities that emerge depending on the names you give.
Here is a poem:Four rows of five Your rickies come alive Twenty is plenty It isn’t tricky Just name each ricky Even though they’re all the same The change comes from the name
