The Game Of Noticing: Inspiration Everywhere

Noticings is a game of noticing the world around you.

Pooling together images of what people around the world find interesting in their daily life, Noticings is a game of noticing the world around you.

Players are encouraged to upload geo-tagged photos to Flickr (tagged with “noticings”) of little bits of inspiration and visual anomalies – anything that catches their eye.

Points are awarded for finding things like the first item in a neighborhood (30 points), noticing something everyday for a week (70 points) or spotting a typo (20 points).

While this game seems designed to foster community, competition and new ways of looking at our everyday surroundings, it could also be used as part of the visual awareness training used to inspire creative work we wrote about previously in Zen-Like Super Noticing Power.
