Creativity in Action – Jason Silva

Jason Silva is a journalist, filmmaker and connoisseur of philosophy. For years he worked as a presenter for Al Gore’s network Current TV but now his work can be found on his youtube channel Shots of Awe.

To my mind his creativity lies in taking something he is passionate about, philosophy and examination, and translating it into a medium that is thought provoking, beautiful and stimulating. I happened upon his work yesterday as part of Discovery’s new channel TestTube and I’m so happy I did.

Here’s a piece of Silva’s recent work – I hope you find it as exciting as I did!
