Clay Shirky: What I Learned About Creativity By Watching Creatives [Video]
Tech thought-leader describes five projects that he thinks are pushing the creative boundaries; and wonders if any rules about creativity can be drawn from looking at such work.
In this video of his talk at PSFK CONFERENCE NYC, Clay Shirky talks about the work of Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. After working there as an assistant professor for almost ten years, Shirky describes five student projects that he thinks are pushing the creative boundaries — from interface design to how people cluster to build new work. At the end of the talk, the technology thought-leader compares creatives as members of a philharmonic orchestra and wonders if any rules can be drawn from looking at such an ensemble.
