Some people say that the more technology we have, the less creative we are. I believe this is not true.
Technology allows us to branch out and obtain new things. We get inspiration from what we have found.
We take digital photos on phones to keep alive the moments we’ve had and using these photos we make a whole new art. We take what we like and add detail and colour to make what we want.
We have the same amount of creativity as other generations but we express it in other ways.
Instead of painting it on a blank canvas or a street wall (which we still do) we can channel creativity into something else.
We make television shows that break people hearts or that make them feel comforted; or, we can still paint and draw to express our thoughts.
We may keep ourselves occupied with technology which means we don’t need to use our hands to create something useful outside of technology.
We used to go outside and play and find new things to create but now we can sit inside and let our phones or TV’s take over our lives.
Older generations might think we’re less creative because we’re always stuck behind a screen but think about what we could be doing behind that screen. We could be making lives better by writing books or watching shows to recreate in a different way.
Just because we express our creativity in different ways does not make us less creative. It makes us innovative.
Who knows what this generation might achieve. We may even end up being the most creative generation yet.
