Amazing talents without creativity, from Tumblr to TikTok
I was chatting with a stylist recently and she talked about “tumblrers”. It was a term that I had never heard before, but it would become the concept that captured the essence of a generation of youngsters that seem to have forgotten what creativity is all about. However, this scheme suggests a new technique based on references. Let’s now dig deeper into this matter.
Most of you must already know Tumblr, a platform where its users can post their writings, audios, videos and images in something called a tumblelog, sometimes also called tlog. Most of the time all of these posts are random and have no clear order or anything in common besides being made by the same person.
The tumblelog can also include all the processes and the long way between an idea and the concluding post, exactly like we would do with a notepad, where we take notes that will lead us to the creative content.
