TED TALK INVITATION
Byron is super-excited!
He's been approached to see whether he would like to give a TEDx talk!
TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is an American media organisation that posts talks online for free distribution under the slogan 'ideas worth spreading'.
Only acknowledged field-leaders are invited to speak at TED talks, so this is an exceptional honour!
The TED Annual Conference is held in Vancouver, but TED talks are held all over the world under licence as TEDx Talks – I think Byron's may be held in the Uckfield Hippodrome...
Right now he's borrowed one of my old film cameras and he's gone out to his studio to make slides of his best paintings, sculptures, installations and so on.
As soon as he's finished, I'll drive him round to the Express Foto Lab in the village – assuming that they still accept film…
His talk is to be entitled: ART FOR NON-HUMANS!
