The Kid Should See This

An animated ode to curiosity, exploration, discovery, & creativity

This stop motion animation by Arts University Bournemouth’s Georgina Venning brings visual life to the words of London-based author Ian Leslie. The narration is from a talk based on Leslie’s book Curious: The Desire to Know and Why Your Future Depends on It. Presented by the RSA Student Design Awards, this is Venning’s ode to Curiosity: Exploration and Discovery.

Sometimes I hear that curiosity and creativity are killed by too many facts — but, actually, the opposite is true: The more you know, the more you want to know. Not only that, but the more you know, the more connections you can make between the different bits of knowledge that you have in your head and therefore the more ideas you have, which is why curiosity is really the wellspring of creativity…
