So what is a Dandypunk?  According to this website, “a dandypunk exists to inspire and motivate creativity, non-conformity, whimsy, intense curiosity, do-it-yourself mentality and everyday eccentricity in everybody. The new weird.”  In the feature video entitled “The Alchemy of Light”, a dandypunk is placed in a variety of unusual settings aided by projection mapping onto street furniture.   What is your view?  Does this dandy punk inspire and motivate creativity?  Does creativity happen in the mainstream or on the edge? Where would this happen in Dallas?  Why is non-conforming creativity important?  Supporting art that rewards “certain types of failure” — seeing indy films, theater productions and art shows that could be terrible” is an important part of supporting and encouraging creativity.  By doing so, you might just find the unique experiences that lift the soul.
