What’s a
TILT Moment?

Great ideas can happen spontaneously and have a lasting positive effect on the world. Inspiration requires stepping away from the day-to-day, and taking a moment to do something different and inquisitive.

My Tilt Moment

On Saturday June 18th, Eli, Zoe and I attended an audio visual smorgasbord in Victoria. The event was hosted at the Crag X climbing gym on Pandora. Attendees were told to bring their pillows along to lie on the floor and soak in the sounds and projections. The experience was rather meditative. I loved the unique combination of venue, content, crowd and format. I would love to see more experimentation like this!

Rather than dealing primarily with nouns (places) they should expand their reach to include verbs (processes). They should embrace the entire lifecycle of design, from conception through documentation through delivery through occupancy. They should partner with software firms, social scientists, and public health officials to create truly interactive environments that are safe, healthy and productive. They should change their business models to embrace risk and get paid based on value actually delivered. Designers should be strategic thinkers and leaders, not only in the community but in corporate boardrooms.
