Just Did It: The Art of Making Crazy Ideas Happen

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Everyone can have a great idea but no idea is valuable until it becomes real. Just Did It is a presentation designed to inspire creative thinkers into action. It shares stories about some truly unique projects that slapped NO in the face, kissed IMPOSSIBLE’S girlfriend and well, Just Did It. Hal Kirkland (Creative Director / Director / Media Artist) will share his creative process, bizarre experiences and unexpected insights gained from making crazy ideas become equally crazy realities.
The presentation will describe how niggling inspirations manifested into a webcam music video that became a Japanese wedding meme (Sour - Hibi No Neiro), transformed the Guggenheim into a memorial for the Transformers (Artobots / Audio Tour Hack), bought every item in a convenience store to sell as pop-art (Store Buyout) and so much more. If all goes to according to plan you’ll be left wondering what amazing things you could create if you - Just Did It.
