great case study of effective creative protest in action: getting the politicians to  improve the street quality in yekaterinburg through street art intervention!

cultural creatives

just heard about this concept of cultural creatives, wikipediad it, and asked myself why i hadn’t heard of this before. then again, i guess much of the work on LOHAS and sinus-milieus builds upon this concept, as well as richard florida’s ‘rise of the creative class’, which i dearly enjoyed. still, seems like a very interesting movie (thanks, jacob)

culture is only generated by copying and adapting culture. nice video series, the first two videos talk about the prevalence of copying/referencing in music and film.

i think lawrence lessig would fully approve of this project.
