Weekend gem: The painter and the pendulum, from Tom Shannon

Each weekend, we’re surfacing a great talk from the TED archives that you might have missed …

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. (Recorded at Tom Shannon’s studio, May 2009, in New York City. Duration: 13:22.)
