We, as creatives, tend to forget that originality is relative. Every idea, every action, every view, and so on was influenced and inspired by something. We get so wrapped up in creating and new ideas that we forget what led us there. We have to acknowledge our process, acknowledge our support systems, our influences and inspirations no matter how big or small, and allow them to be present in our creations and creative process.
As people, our actions have started to lack intention. No Originals is an idea not only to promote preserving our inspirations and influences along our creative journeys, but to act and create with intention. We should act with all intention to reach out and touch others. To influence. To inspire. After all, we are not the first and we definitely will not be the last.
