Create, don’t just replicate
Posted February 24, 2014on:
This is Pharrell Williams’ official Happy music video.
The music was featured in Despicable Me 2 and this is the minion version of the same.
The video above is by Pomplamoose and is a mashup of two songs.
The latter two creations must replicate the song, but they also create something new.
The minion version has lyrics and the minions. Pomplamoose has an elaborate setup done with one projector in one take.
Creating is much harder work than just replicating, but the value of the creative process and products are clear to see.
Why then do we focus so much on duplicating or replicating information in schools and tests?
