I had a great story recently — I love telling it — of a little girl who was in a drawing lesson. She was 6, and she was in the back, drawing. The teacher said this little girl hardly ever paid attention. In this drawing lesson, she did. And the teacher was fascinated.
She went over to her, and she said, what are you drawing?
And the girl said, I’m drawing a picture of God.
And the teacher said that nobody knows what God looks like, and the girl said, they will in a minute.
Kids will take a chance. If they don’t know, they’ll have a go… They’re not frightened of being wrong… If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you will never come up with anything original… And by the time they get to be adults, most kids have lost the capacity. They have become frightened of being wrong.”
In an altogether excellent episode on the source of creativity, NPR’s TED Radio Hour revisits the most popular TED talk of all time, by Sir Ken Robinson, author of the indispensable The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything.
Half a century earlier, the great social scientist John W. Gardner made an exquisite case for what kids can teach us about risk, innovation, and the fear of failure.

Multi-speaker performance sound system allows sound to be arranged spatially within an area. Made up of sixteen pillars (with three multidirectional speakers each) as well as the whole floor area emitting audio, sound can be given a much richer physical positioning - video (put together by Ableton) embedded below:
4DSOUND produces moving sound images, in an unlimited spatial continuum.
4DSOUND enables you to walk through space and experience sound from all directions. Sound seems to hover in space – like a phantom. Sounds move around, above, beneath and in-between the listeners. Led by your ears, you’re encouraged to explore the space. You can move between blocks of sound, touch lines of sound and walk through walls of sound.
4DSOUND invites you to lose orientation and transcend the actual space you’re in. Sounds can seem intimately close as if whispered in your ear – or floating afar on the distant horizon. Sounds can circle around your head like a flock of birds, or twirl in the air like feathers.
4DSOUND charges, conducts and explodes energies in space. You’re not only hearing sound, but experiencing it – as a manifestation of physical momentum.
