Video: Opening titles for Imagined Beauty, Session 10 of TEDGlobal 2013

Posted by:


To a techno beat, this video introduction to “Imagined Beauty” celebrates hip-hop dance. Body-popping in a black, white and grey world, the dancers’ movements create colorful shadows that stand out beautifully against the dreary background. This concept perfectly highlights the session, which includes talks from a cloudspotter, a poetry critic and the man who coined the term ‘mathemagician.’

Sophie Gateau of France created this video for TEDGlobal 2013, bringing her background in architecture, graphic design and film into a new perspective.
