Oblique Strategies



A friend sent me a deck of Oblique Strategies cards. I only learned about them recently – I thought I knew a fair bit about Brian Eno’s work, but there’s always more to discover.

The Oblique Strategies are

“a card-based method for promoting creativity. … Each card offers a challenging constraint intended to help artists (particularly musicians) break creative blocks by encouraging lateral thinking.”

“Ask people to work against their better judgment.”
