Conversations On Inspiration
This episode will be discussing Inspiration. Our special guest is Nathaniel Moccia. I have worked with him in the past professionally and now he has started a new venture outside of the United States. Nate has a unique approach to inspiring people to find their better selves and live up to their own perceived potential.
We discuss using inspiration in the workplace. Nate brings his unique perspective as a manager of people into today’s conversation. We take a look at inspiration from a leadership and team building outlook which can be utilized in your artistic goals. Some of you may be looking for new ways to be the leader you idolize, here is a great view from a manger I respect and admire.
The definition of inspiration according to Merriam Webster is a divine influence or action on a person believed to qualify him or her to receive and communicate sacred revelations, the action or power of moving the intellect or emotions, the act of influencing or suggesting opinions, the act of drawing in specifically ; the drawing of air into the lungs. Vik Muniz says that “The really magical things are the ones that happen right in front of you. A Lot of the time you keep looking for beauty, but it is already there. And if you look with a bit more intention, you see it.” Take a look at his website vikmuniz.net. Vik Muniz is a Brazilian artist and photographer. Initially a sculptor, Muniz grew interested with the photographic representations of his work, eventually focusing completely on photography. Primarily working in series, Muniz incorporates the use of quotidian objects such as diamonds, sugar, thread, chocolate syrup and garbage in his practice to create bold, ironic and often deceiving imagery, gleaned from the pages of pop culture and art history. His work has been met with both commercial success and critical acclaim, and has been exhibited worldwide. Just one look at his portfolio and you can see he is in touch with inspiration.
