There was this AI creative challenge where the you had to figure out things to do with 4 objects, as follows:
A box, a candle, a pencil and a rope
Here's my 3 proposals:
1. Draw a still life on the box of the candle and the rope so that it looks like 3D (i.e. draw on all 6 sides of the cube, with the pencil)
2. make a clock out of setting fire to the candle, the rope and the pencil - they will burn at different rates and you could mark out the seconds, minutes and hours with box lengths, then sit on the box, passing time
3. Have a boxing match between the pencil and the candle, in a ring made by the rope.
