About this event
This event TEDxParisSalon was the last one of 2012. We welcomed seven speakers on stage and one mentalist. From fashion in prison to the measure of time, from a shamanic experience in Mongolia to landart, from subjective perception to social media in China, the 135 persons in the audience were offered a travel in space, time and ideas.
Land artist, he paints with cereals, plants and trees in huge scale. Urban artist at first, he is now using landscape as his canvass. He works between Paris and Montreal.
Chinese multimedia artist, Yi Zhou is known for her video work. She showed her work in Paris, Shanghaï, New York, Venise... She is also the art adviser for tudou.com and fashion adviser of sina.com.
Writer, traveller, journalist for the BBC, she is also a shaman according to the tradition in Mongolia, an adventure she describes in her latest book.
Former diplomat, doctor in philosophy, he studies the ethic and value of "kindness". He shows the strange history of the word and how this minor value can make our life better.
