What living artist would you love to collaborate with?

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Papercutter Béatrice Coron this year. It was a fantastic experience and extremely fulfilling to re-imagine paper into a 3D film. What artists have you met at TED or seen on TEDTalks that you would love to collaborate with? Why? What would you do with their vision?

Do it. I highly recommend it.

      Dec 19 2013: Delighted to see Brene Brown on that list. I only discovered her through TED, and it's been one of the highlights of discovering the joys of TED. Listening to her I feel like she's taken the thoughts have been floating around in my head for years and consolidated them in a coherent form. Even better, this has given me a platform from which to develop my insights further. I don't know about collaborating with her, I'd be pretty happy to just sit down and just talk with her for a couple of hours!
