My husband keeps reminding me that I should stop funding Kickstarter projects until I get a job. He is absolutely right. But some art MUST be funded. I found this guy through ted.com, he is – as well as his art – absolutely fascinating. Very fresh too. So I backed him :) I recommend you check out both videos, contribute your limitations story on his web site and if you so wish back his project on Kickstarter. I promise, either one or all of the above will make you smile/ happy. Art therapy, the best there is.

I became very curious about this process, and I wondered: if we looked at all our limitations collectively, what kind of patterns would we see? And what kind of insights would we have?…
