IMPULSIVE, UNPREDICTABLE, SPONTANEOUS, PASSING, EXTRAVAGANT, IMMEDIATE, DISSIDENT, ECCENTRIC
The whim is thoughtless, sudden. Impossible to predict, it comes out of nowhere,
does not last, yet takes hostage all of our senses. It is a passenger of our mind. Along its path, it infuses madness into the common. Its impulsiveness reinvents trends, brings about non-conformism and fantasy. A whim never gives a clue about its next move, and let us discover what happens when one gives in to these intrusive thoughts, when one comes to terms with a whim's provocative character and charming extravagance.
Requests deemed too demanding, unreasonable, superfluous or reactionary
are often described as whimsical. We are quick to call capricious the
eternally dissatisfied around us. The word undeniably has a pejorative
connotation; in everyday life, it is used to discredit or patronize. We believe the whim deserves to be seen in new ways, to be given new meaning by questioning
its modern definition and highlighting its essential character.
After all, unpredictability is essential to the creative process and allows
any designer or creative to be filled with wonder on a daily basis.
Let us all remember that disobedience is a vector of social changes.
Let us be inspired by the wild kid hidden in all of us.
Should we give in?
What is your whim?
