This is the 3rd part of a fascinating series Produced by Kirby Ferguson and Robert Grigsby Wilson titled Everything Is A Remix. In this episode they explore the act of creation. As stated in this video…
“The act of creation is surrounded by a fog of myths. Myths that creativity comes via inspiration. That original creations break the mold, that they’re the products of geniuses, and appear as quickly as electricity can heat a filament. But creativity isn’t magic: it happens by applying ordinary tools of thought to existing materials.”
Using the examples of the evolution of the personal computer as it’s prime example, the filmmakers give us a pretty compelling argument for why everything is a remix. This is a must see and I can’t wait to see the 4th and final installment.
