The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities.
But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out? This is the question addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era.
“ Man lives to move forward.
To move forward is to live more.
To live more is to be more and do more; and it is being and doing that constitutes the path to happiness.
The more you are and the more you do, the richer your life, the greater your joy.
But being and doing must always live together as one.
To try to be much and not try to do much, is to find life a barren waste.
To try to do much and not try to be much, is to find life a burden too heavy and wearisome to bear.
The being of much gives the necessary inspiration and the necessary power to the doing of much.
The doing of much gives the necessary expression to the being of much. And it is the bringing forth of being through the act of doing that produces happiness that is happiness. Being much gives capacity for doing much.
Doing much gives expression to the richest and the best that is within us. And the more we increase the richness of that which is within us, the more we increase our happiness, provided we increase, in the same proportion, the expression of that greater richness.
The first essential is provided for by the being of much; the second, by the doing of much; and the secret of both may be found by him who lives to move forward. “
