The Future of Creativity

Creativity is valuable

The future is automated

“Our findings thus imply that as technology races ahead, low-skill workers will reallocate to tasks that are non-susceptible to computerisation — i.e. tasks that require creative and social intelligence.”

“What sets ‘future-proof’ digital skills apart are their use for non-routine tasks, problem-solving and the creation of digital content.”

Creativity will be assisted

Phil Schiller, iPhone 11 Keynote

“When you press the shutter button it takes one long exposure, and then in just one second the neural engine analyzes the fused combination of long and short images, picking the best among them, selecting all the pixels, and pixel by pixel, going through 24 million pixels to optimize for detail and low noise.”

Nicolas Winding Refn, Too Old To Die Young

Communication is universal

“As digital imaging advanced, the internet expanded into the multimedia universe we have today, and, perhaps paradoxically, its art communities dwindled. Users traded dedicated artist communities for major social networks, leaving links to their new Instagram and Facebook accounts on their abandoned profiles.”

“As the internet moved toward homogeneity and passivity, once-vibrant art communities became casualties in social media’s rapid, obliterative rise.”

Lois Van Baarle, Ambrosial

“You have to post constantly, otherwise, the algorithm decides you’re not interesting, and will not show your posts to your followers.”
