“Everything is a remix”, presumably also this title

If you’re into creativity, you may have heard about Everything is a Remix. Its premise is that many things we consider original ideas are rather derivatives or combinations of existing ideas. It all comes down to

COPY — TRANSFORM — COMBINE 

Everything is a Remix is a four-part video series which digs into the creative process. I’ve just watched part 3, highly recommended:

[vimeo 25380454]

You can watch the whole series here.

I guess one could lament the idea that there are no original ideas (hmm, recursion? ;), on the other hand (and I think that should be the dominant view point) this notion takes off some burden you may have been carrying around with you. You do not have to be 100% original in order to be creative, simply because it is not even possible: Copy, transform, combine!
