Fabian Oefner Explores Poetic Phenomena in His Art and Science Talk

By: Mesel Isaac - Published: Feb 7, 2014 • References: new.ted and youtube
Fabian Oefner's art and science talk explores the close relationship between the two subjects through the numerous photographs he has taken over the years.

Unlike most speeches, Oefner's consist of live demos and bright colors. Indeed, it's important to note how beautiful his art and science talk is, not just in terms of what he says but what he shows as well. Setting fire to whiskey, mixing paint with magnetic liquids and photographs of pixels interacting with soundwaves are par for the course in Oefner's speech. In addition to the visuals however, Fabian Oefner slows things down and discusses the science behind his photographs and demos as well.

At the end of the keynote, the audience feels more appreciation and a sense of awe at the beautiful phenomena that occur around us every day.
