TEDxSanJoseCA 2012- Caren Alpert - You Art What You Eat: Are You Ready for Your Close-Up?

Caren Alpert has spent the last decade capturing mostly recognizable images of food. Now, by taking photographs with an electron microscope, she has shifted her attention to what we never actually see: the hidden landscapes, patterns, and textures of what we eat. These images are simultaneously mysterious and familiar, deconstructing, abstracting, and revealing the ordinary from an extraordinary perspective. "The closer the lens got, the more I saw food--and consumers of food--as part of a larger, complex ecosystem."http://carenalpertfineart.com/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. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, Where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
