Make Something: Door

“Add a door where one wouldn’t normally exist. Extra credit: Make it functional.”

This now hangs right inside my office door, on a wall where a real door would be problematic. As you enter the room, the green door sticks out a little, cut free from its surroundings on three sides. It’s as if the door has swung open, just a bit.

If this catches your eye, you might open the flap a bit more to see what’s behind the green door. Inside (or outside, depending on your perspective), you’ll discover a few words from Walt Disney:

We keep moving forward, opening new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious, and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

But here’s the thing: If you’re over four feet tall, you might not even notice this door. I placed it at little-kid-eye-level, right where my daughters can see it when they come into my office to ask questions, share ideas, or simply interrupt.

Will they notice? Will they be curious enough to open? And what paths will these words make them consider?
