The Igra ustvarjalnosti/The Creativity Game journal has become a constant in the lives of its editors, the Editorial Board, the International Board, and its contributors, past and present. The current volume (2018) is Volume 6. What did we study and create this past year? We are becoming an interdisciplinary and international journal. We spread our activities to the Balkans, Middle East, Baltic. The reader will immediately wonder about the common denominator. Is it only about fulfiling scientific performance and the desire to keep the journal alive? Similarly to the journal’s content changing from one field to another, I also wonder about the profession’s content – where do we stand in Slovenia and what is different abroad. ...

Nothing is different yet everything is different. Buildings are colourful, unfinished, scattered, land plots disorganised – a mix of individuality, composition without composition (until this new composition becomes a different kind of order in disorder), with flat, pitched, gable roofs at the same time, with materials added from everywhere. We are becoming increasingly global, the local identity no longer exists. But when we enter a space we come across a completely different cultural context. It gives us a sense of security, respect, friendliness, relaxation, comfort, and contrasting feelings as well (cognitive, experiential space). Under the impression of various places I find that rather than buildings, settlement, and surroundings, it is people, culture, and tradition that cause these feelings. Below you will find four photos that were taken during my travels, explorations, and teaching in various places in 2018: Germany, Kosovo, Lebanon, and Japan.

Any other researcher would provide accurate information about where a photo was taken and about its significance. But I leave this to you, readers, to create your own opinions about these four impressions. Each of this “moments captured with phone” carries an unforgettable experience of life in itself. But not because of the beauty of the ambience, but rather because of the experience, a moment mixed with one’s well-being and feelings. Each moment could be broken down in terms of date, hour, weather conditions, location, environmental parameters, such as wind, sun, rain; and a person’s condition: headache, lack of sleep, interest in one’s surroundings, the desire to walk, passivity of looking at the built environment versus the natural surroundings. This year’s papers are exactly like that. At first sight they have nothing in common. But each hides in itself not only a study, but the experience of becoming involved with the journal, the journey of writing a scientific paper. 2018 has been another year of unforgettable stories that we, researchers, created and wrote – enjoy reading about them.
