Show Summary Details


This chapter details the author's meeting with anthropologist and filmmaker Jean Rouch, where they talk about imagination. Imagination, in all of its artistic permutations, enables us to approach the world afresh. Inspired by the imagination, art enables us to weave the world, to design a new blanket. As Jean Rouch would say, the imagination enables us to tell stories, which give birth to new stories, which generate, in their turn, more stories. In the end, the imagination always brings us back to the story.
