An Eccentric Inventor and His Quest for Inspiration
May 27, 2015
A toothbrush maraca, a teacup cooling fan, an umbrella with a potted plant—these are all creations of Dominic Wilcox, a London-based inventor. While the idea of someone being a professional inventor may seem antiquated, Wilcox uses his inventions as a creative outlet, more for art than for utility. "I'm always on the lookout for things to try and inspire me," he says in this documentary by the filmmaker Liam Saint-Pierre. "I'm desperate for inspiration to come up with a new idea."
