"The study of science, of space gives you perspective. It helps you solve problems."
In honor of our month themed around all interpretations of the word “Space,” Lucianne Walkowicz took the stage at our New York event. Lucianne is an astrophysicist and multimedia artist. Her work delves into a question both scientific, and fundamentally human: what is the nature of life in the universe?
At our Montréal event, Claude G. Théorêt breaks quantum physics and the creation of our universe down in a way that even the least science-savvy folks can understand.
From balloons to blankets, Claude uses a variety of props and simple slides to illustrate the most complex theories—perfect from astrophysicists and the not-so-much alike. The video is a great watch not only to learn a bit more about our universe, but to switch gears and get you thinking in a new way.
Speaking on the intersection of art and science, Claude says, “Being a real scientist or a real creative, means being at the limit of the known and unknown. And that’s where things are confusing. And if you’re not there, you’re not pushing yourself hard enough.”
Claude G. Théorêt kicked off CreativeMornings in Montréal this July, speaking on the month’s theme of “Space.” An astrophysicist with expertise in the management of innovation, Claude is also a teacher and spoke on how how the infinitely large is actually determined and constrained by the infinitely small.
Pitting Edwin P. Hubble against Albert Einstein, Claude broke down how our universe came into existence, using these wonderfully simple illustrations to help depict complex theories.
"We are all made up of stardust," Claude told the audience.

This month is all about SPACE!
In honor of July’s theme, we want to know: what kind of space are you most interested in learning more about?
- personal space
- public space
- outer space
- the space bar

How about you?
July’s Global Theme is “Space”
This June, more than fifty chapters came together to talk about “Food” at CreativeMornings events around the world. This month, we’re excited to announce our next theme: “Space.” The theme was chosen by our Berlin organizer Jürgen Siebert and depicted by talented Berlin-based illustrator Jens Bonnke for our monthly illustration.
From Dan Goods, visual strategist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (Los Angeles), to Brad Cloepfil, architect at Allied Works Architecture (Portland), speakers are tackling the topic from a variety of angles. Personal space, airspace, public space, outer space, cyberspace, and the space bar are just a few takes on this theme.
To find a July event near you, check out creativemornings.com, or follow your local chapter on Twitter. As always, tickets are free and available starting the Monday before the talk.
We’ll see you in the morning!
We love this super bowl commercial for AXE done by the über talented folks over at Bartle Bogle Hegarty London.
If you think that’s good, you should see the talk by the man behind it, past speaker Sir John Hegarty, speaking at CreativeMornings/Paris (the “H” in BBH).
