The Power of Not Knowing (2013)

Commissioned by TEDxCalgary 2013

THE POWER OF NOT KNOWING, presented at TEDxCalgaryexplored the generative aspects of uncertainty. Blending personal stories, the science of black holes, and the artistic process, Jones describes a practice of making friends with the unknown. Five audience volunteers were engaged with recorded instructions on synchronized iPods turning the TEDx presentation into a live, real-time creative experiment.
