We Are Innovation Because we are life artists

In our last post analysing innovation impact on society (The Disrupted Society) we talked about the new creativity that arises with diverted use of newly developed technologies. New creators are able to visualize and materialise an innovative form of arts, breaking open the doors of their imagination, taking us beyond. Connecting otherwise locked areas, sectors, methods, materials, they derive the core function of a technical tool which results in groundbreaking ideas. While they for sure are inspiring from an artistic and cultural point of view, they also help shaping the imaginary of societies as they open new opportunities to create, think, and see the world. The beauty of these arts combined with the Internet connectivity enables us to picture the world wondering, fearing, and perhaps, changing at last.

Arts and cultures offer a myriad of standpoints to consider a moment under different views. What message does it leave, if any? Is the artist playing us for fools, or is he or she trying to tell us we are not watching with the right lenses. Innovation requires that we sometimes drop our antique spectacles to admire present as unseen so far.
