Bořek ŠípekさんのWings to the Future
Talent is like the marksman who hits a target which others cannot reach. Genius is like the marksman who hits a target, as far as which others cannot even see. Therefore these others obtain information about genius only indirectly, and thus tardily, and even this they accept only on trust and faith.
Arthur Schopenhauer The World as Will and Representation, 1819
It has already been written a lot about the talent: how it is, how it should be, what talent is and what it is not, talent as a higher grade of development of abilities culminating in genius. The foundation for talent is the natural gift, nevertheless no one will achieve any improvement of his abilities without strong will and diligence. The award, designed by Bořek Šípek for INSPIRELI AWARDS, aims to support young gifted talents and to give them wings in their upward flight. The vase „Wings to the Future“ represents qualities of the talented author needed for achievement of higher goals: crow‘s creativity, skylark‘s harmony, hawk‘s vision, owl‘s wisdom, seagull‘s boldness, swallow‘s liveliness and dove‘s peace.
