David Carson Speaking at TED Conference

David Carson on Design and Discovery

The title does not disappoint in my opinion, David Carson walks through a visually stunning, insightful and at times very funny slide show of his work and found images; and his thoughts on intuition, psycho-killers, (how 1980's) William Burroughs, Ray Gun, Marshall Mcluhan, Nine Inch Nails, 911, Quicksilver and a lot more…

He saved the best for last at the end of the video he displays his visual genius by pointing out disturbing 911 photos juxtaposed with banal advertising in high profile magazines like Time, Newsweek and People published right after 911. "On the left we see people running for their lives and on the right we see there is a new way to support your breasts."
