I came across some amazing videos on Wong Fu Productions and I must say, a lot of thought must have gone into making such short yet amazing videos. This video, in general, is one of my favourites because of the way in which it puts across its idea.
There is a writer sitting on steps, writing a story and he comes across a girl picking something fallen on the steps. He asks her what she’s doing. She gets startled and is surprised at being noticed. Then she tells him her story. She talks about the ‘stream of consciousness’ and how the mind flits from one thought to another several times in the span of a few seconds. Her job was to collect all those wandering thoughts and memories that people leave behind in their hurry, and puts them in a glass jar. On being asked what she does with them, she tells him that they would be lost forever if she doesn’t hold on to them and when the time is right she will return them. It’s her when you are reminded of an old thought or feeling but people want to let go of some thoughts and its her who preserves them. Then she demonstrates how a lost thought combined with a lost memory gives birth to… a new idea… inspiration. 🙂
I don’t think I could have framed this in a better way.
Please go watch this short movie and others by Wong Fu Productions. You will love it.
