Stephen Wiltshire is an artist with autism, the world's most famous 'savant'. He is able to look at a building and sketch it from memory in minute detail, perfectly. This fascinating and informative programme looks back over his younger life and charts his progress from being a mute child with a nervous twitch to a confident young man who travels the world alone, with an art gallery devoted to his work. Despite having already achieved so much, Stephen here sets himself a new challenge to produce a panoramic drawing of the entire City of London after viewing it from a helicopter for just 15 minutes. The results are extraordinary

The Einstein effect savants and creativity ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Mute until the age of nine, Stephen Wiltshire learned to communicate through realistic, richly detailed drawings. Alonzo Clemens sculpts clay animal figures with great precision, even though he can barely form a sentence. Matt Savage faced extraordinary developmental problems as a child but has become a teen prodigy among jazz musicians. What is the relationship between creativity and autistic behavior? Why does slow learning-such as the young Albert Einstein experienced-sometimes conceal genius? This program focuses on these questions and other aspects of autistic brain research, revealing fascinating links between the realms of savants and prodigies
