The painter and the pendulum: Tom Shannon on TED.com

TED visits Tom Shannon in his Manhattan studio for an intimate look at his science-inspired art. An eye-opening, personal conversation with John Hockenberry reveals how nature’s forces — and the onset of Parkinson’s tremors — interact in his life and craft. (TED in the Field: Recorded May 2009, New York, NY. Duration: 13:22)
