Elizabeth Gilbert – On Genius (TED, Long Beach 2009)

Author of best seller Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert talks about creativity, success, and what we have come to call “genius” in our elizabethgmodern, humanistic, rational world, and the consequences that brings upon those who are blessed/cursed with such a name. Not only a very intelligent talk, but a beautiful example of deep thought expressed in a casual, funny style we would expect to find amongst stand up comedians rather than writers.

Everybody involved in any kind of creative process should listen carefully to this talk, as one day it could be important for them not to start “drinking gin at 9 in the morning”.




Space, Form, Words is an initiative started by Silvia Polito, Ciriaco Castro and Enrique Ramos as a multilingual, open canvas for thoughts, images and ideas on architecture, art, design, video, and every sort of creative process in general
