Several months ago over coffee, Holly Painter and I began brainstorming a collaborative project to celebrate learning, inquisitiveness, and curiosity. After meandering down a few different paths of creative iteration, we eventually came up with this: Ignition. It is a one-minute poem, written and performed by Holly, filmed and produced by yours truly. (As you will see, we also recruited quite a few friends in order to make it happen. A huge thanks to everyone who gave of their time to be involved!)
To me, Holly’s poem is like an ode to learning itself — a celebration of curiosity for the sake curiosity. There is something inherently inspiring about this: as soon as we acknowledge the potential to discover something new, we find ourselves simultaneously acknowledging the presence of opportunity.
