It’s Friday the 13th! And, admit it, you’re a little creeped out. Just for fun on this peril-fraught day, here are three weird, bizarre, and slightly spooky TEDx Talks.
Enter another dimension with this haunting art video made for TEDxCopenhagen. The weird audio-visual is up for interpretation…a winter pine forest and an endless ventilation duct?
What makes Psycho’s shower scene so scary? In this talk at TEDxUCLA, researcher Dan Blumenstein explains the sounds that put our hair on end.
And finally, a creepy UFO drum because, well, ALIENS:
The INDEX: Award is the biggest design award in the world, presented by INDEX: Design to Improve Life, a Danish non-profit dedicated to promoting the design of sustainable solutions to global challenges through creativity, education, and inspiration.
This year, TEDx was one of several finalists for the INDEX: Award! INDEX describes us as a "Guide [on] how to learn and benefit from the world’s best ideas," and we quite agree with the sentiment.
One of the biggest problems for great ideas is that they get lost due to lack of distribution channels. This is especially sad, when many lost ideas have the power to positively change peoples’ lives. However, TEDx – baby sister to TED Talks – is here to make sure that some of these ideas get proper attention. With focus on Technology, Entertainment and Design, TEDx events are some of the most popular and independently organized events in the world. Ideas worth spreading – by you, through TEDx, for your community…
Indeed a platform for improving life. Good news!
