Not bronze statues of dead white guys or static plop art, but dynamic media art that reflects the city and the time we live in, and gives the energy of the city back to us.The new canvas for artistic expression are digital displays the size of buildings, wearable computers the size of t-shirt logos, and every programmable surface in between. George Fifield, founder of Boston Cyberarts, explores the future of digital art in this TEDPrize City 2.0 look at how to make urban environments more beautiful.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
