TEDxFlanders - Angelo Vermeulen - Biomodd: Art, gaming and ecology

TEDxFlanders is enormously proud to present Angelo Vermeulen, if only for the fact that he's currently the first and only Belgian TED fellow (TED2010). Considering that these fellows are "the next generation of innovators who have demonstrated remarkable accomplishment and outstanding potential to positively affect the world", our enthusiasm should not be a surprise. Originally a PhD Biologist, Angelo has expanded into the visual arts, while continuously retaining a link to the world of living things. One of his recent projects is called Biomodd, which is - simply put - a worldwide series of cross-cultural, symbiotic installations in which social interaction, ecology, and game culture converge. It's one of those projects you have to see to understand. It's also one of those projects that gets you invited to the ESA, for input on their MELiSSA life support division. Angelo is a "TEDster pur sang": remarkable ideas and an enormous drive and enthusiasm to push them forward. Recorded on September 5th 2010 at the Zoo of Antwerp. More information: About TEDx 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. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
