Just read through the booklet from Michel Gondry’s DVD collection. Among many funny and original explanations he talks about the White Stripes “Fell in love with a girl” video and his inspiration.
He refers to his generation as the “Generation Lego” – explained with the toys very basic foundation for creativity and its ability to construct an idea from zero, all by association.
I guess the 10-25 year olds are the “Generation Playstation” where creativity are not developed from zero but within the ability to deconstruct, merge, mix & match, sample.
So the existentialistic question is which basic skills are the one’s needed to be creative in our society today.
