This is a richly illustrated thirty-minute video talk about the nature of creativity in humor, science and the arts. Written, produced and narrated by Roy R. Behrens, UNI Professor Emeritus and Distinguished Scholar, it places particular emphasis on the concept of bisociation, as originally described in The Act of Creation, by Hungarian-born British writer Arthur Koestler (1965). It is especially well-suited for classroom presentations, assigned online viewing, and in settings that encourage interdisciplinary STEM- or STEAM-based learning.
