TED Talk: Jonathan Harris -- The art of collecting stories
Artist, computer-scientist Jonathan Harris talks about some of his cultural projects traveling around the world and collecting stories. He starts off with his own and then talks about some ones online and then in the world.
My favorite one is hearing about the wishes and happiness of the people of Bhutan. I have a Bhutanese prayer flag that I made myself at Art After Dark several months ago and it flutters on the chains of my ceiling fan. My wish: to be content with what I get and happy continuing to do the things I do.
