I Live for Art examines creativity from both a philosophical and first-hand perspective. The creatives are composer Brian McWhorter, whose latest project involves a creativity machine borne of a bathtub; Mark Applebaum, working through all manner of different creative musical endeavors; and Mark Gould of Pink Baby Monster, who is often seen working alongside, and creatively antagonizing, McWhorter. As the three go about explaining their work, theoretical quantum physicist and philosopher Amit Goswami, storyteller Michael Meade, and event producer Elliot Rasenick offer a grander narrative of human existence and history, their insights serving to connect the individual acts of creativity to the collective whole of life.”—Film Threat.
