How I became 100 artists: Shea Hembrey on

How do you stage an international art show with work from 100 different artists? If you’re Shea Hembrey, you invent all of the artists and artwork yourself — from large-scale outdoor installations to tiny paintings drawn with a single-haired brush. Watch this funny, mind-bending talk to see the explosion of creativity and diversity of skills a single artist is capable of. (Recorded at TED2011, March 2011, in Long Beach, CA. Duration: 17:51)
