back to basics #artsyfartsy #clay
Yesterday, we interviewed an applicant for a designer position. She’s good though I could feel she’s nervous and shy. We already had questions before we even met her and the last on the list was “If you would choose to have a super power, what would it be and why?”
She answered teleportation mainly because it’s going to be easier for her to travel anywhere in the world.
Her answer was actually okay, but not for me. If you are one of those tourists roaming around the world trying to cross out every item on your bucket list before you die then you might agree with her answer. However I think that for someone who loves to travel like me, the super power will spoil everything that’s great about travelling.
I prefer the movement. I have to feel that I’m moving from one place to another. I don’t want to snap between places. I want excitement along the way. I want to feel that constant anticipation of something, or someone, or somewhere. I need to see how one goes from one place to another. I need to experience it because travel is not the destination, it’s the trip. It’s that moment you start running in the airport to catch your boarding plane. It’s that moment you realize talking to strangers on the bus isn’t really a bad thing.
Perhaps I’m a masochist ha-ha but I have learned to abolish the idea of teleportation even if Olivia Dunham made it look so cool. I don’t want to be another tourist in some place. I want to be a traveller who actually gets THERE. I want to experience movement and time simultaneously.
I want to have the power to be more human. I guess that’s what I really need.
