Defining Creativity

It’s surprising to see how often people doubt their creative potential nowadays. Whether it’s as routine as putting together an outfit or as personal as writing a poem, creativity is a natural part of life. It can be found in the smallest and largest activities of each day. You use it constantly whether you realize it or not, however, few people appreciate the true power that lies in creativity. This video, just like the Flip Phone described in it, was created by Kristian Ulrich Larsen, an interaction designer that develops technology and digital services fit for the 21st century. Try not to get distracted by the phone and pay attention to how they describe creativity. Listen to it twice if you have to. It’s worth it.

I think that artistic creativity actually is innate and I think what happens is… it’s either encouraged or it’s beaten out of you… – Poet Joshua Bennett
