...who used their poop to paint on walls. For art, of course. They also used to build huts out of palm tree leaves; create an entire world of Neopets-inspired characters, towns and games called Imaginary World; write totally uninspired songs when they were lonely at sleepaway camp ("You're Not Alone," really?); and craft entire fantasy worlds for their stories, complete with rivers, mountains and capital cities.
Long story, short: They liked to create.
That child was me. But it could just as easily have been you or any other child on this planet.
Hi, my name is Dominique Katia Feldman, and I like to create. I like to connect with others over our creations. I like to create art in many forms: film, music, photography, sketches, whatever inspires me...and even some things that don't, because in the end, there will be times when we have no choice but to create our own inspiration from scratch.
We might not know why we're here on Earth, but we do know that our minds are capable of amazing things. We can create something out of nothing. We can create something entirely different out of something. We can create nothing at all.
Why do I create?
Well, for a few reasons:
1. I want to inspire people. I want others to fight, to live, to create just as freely as I can and do.
2. I want to motivate people. I want others to take action, even when inspiration is low.
3. I want to make people feel. Each and every emotion is beautiful and powerful.
4. I want to. It's as simple as that. Creation is a powerful skill.
So now we're left with one question...
You're given the power to create.
What will YOU do with it?
