CNN.com ignites a series exploring creativity

CNN.com has developed a 6-week enterprise series called Spark which asks the question: what goes on inside a creative mind? The series launched this weekend on the site’s Living Section, and will profile several people who epitomize certain characteristics of creativity: passion, failure, and improvisation, among others.

Part One of the Spark series is with Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys which explores Passion, where he will talk about what inspires him to make music, and of course the Beach Boys reunion coming later this year.

As for the rest of the series written by producer Todd Leopold, we’ll hear from some of the country’s most creative minds, including a legendary musician, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, a genre-hopping DJ and artist, and a female roboticist. Through text articles, video, and photos, the series shows that everybody can be creative … if willing to work at it. All you need is a spark.
