CREATIVITY

13 Jan

In this case creativity should really be spelled with a K, for K Hole. I was reminded of this great film by Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling because their new one (below) has already gone super-viral too. It’s a mordant comment on the way our culture festishises creativity– as part of modern child rearing and pedagogy, as an adult lifestyle choice, as a tool for social improvement– while reviling anybody who is genuinely and totally creative because real creativity is sometimes dark and messy and unnerving, and it doesn’t reliably arrive on schedule or under budget. Or something. If you ever thought Sesame Street needed a bit more ontological horror, these videos are for you. You should also try watching Fraggle Rock as an adult. Seriously, that shit is morbid.

Creativity really is a beautiful pie full of raw guts.

    The makers of these films are running a Kickstarter to do another four episodes in the series. At the time of writing they have five days to go and are about 80% funded.
