The creative Brain: How Insight Works
 

It is a feeling we all know - the moment when a light goes on in your head. In a sudden flash of inspiration, a new idea is born. Today, scientists are using some unusual techniques to try to work out how these moments of creativity - whether big, small or life-changing - come about. They have devised a series of puzzles and brainteasers to draw out our creative behaviour, while the very latest neuroimaging technology means researchers can actually peer inside our brains and witness the creative spark as it happens. What they are discovering could have the power to make every one of us more creative.


Everything is a Remix

 

This documentary discusses how creativity requires influence and through examples in music, video, arts, science, we see how everything is a remix!


Teaching To See

The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities.   

But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out?

RIP! A Remix Manigesto

    I just watched RIP! A Remix Manifesto. For the most part I agree with the arguments he supports. I'm for anything that could develop and nurture creativity. Copyright companies both in the US and France are pretty obscure organizations and although I do recognize the financial benefit I myself could (potentially) receive, I find it absolutely ridiculous for instance that the rights go for 70 years after the artist's death. It can be even longer for diverse reasons. If anyone remixes my music, please send me a copy!
