I would argue that there is a certain amount of poetic beauty behind the fact that you can trace where one person has been in order to leave a trail. The unknown behind this persons appearance, and life story, yet being able to step in the places he’s stepped and have a little glimpse at who he is everywhere you go, leaves a game of mystery and doubt that I find stimulating. This is why when I’m in a backstreet full of graffiti, I don’t see abandonment and ill maintenance, I see artistic mystery.

"Me and my brother had a dreamy idea of what graffiti was. There was a specific wall next to my brothers school, that was something like 50 meters by 10, that was covered in layers and layers of graffiti. Some of the most beautiful graffiti was there. Illustrations of animals and human figures, layered with extremely technical graffiti. This was a beautiful wall filled with colour, emotions and decades of history. Every time I went by that wall, it made me dream because I knew I could never see every single piece and detail of it. It was a complex piece that permanently evolved and therefore permanently fascinated me." - Graham Martin at TEDxTransmedia 2013

Imagine having a fashion curator in residence at Google, Yahoo and Twitter, letting their employees and CEOs experience how dressing differently can effect their creativity and productivity.

There’s now a bra that can can detect cancer earlier than a mammogram, there’s fabric that can administer medicine. These things aren’t new any more what would be new is if they could be desirable.

I think we need to update our instinct and go to Instinct 2.0, maybe technology and Quantified Self devices can help us do that by helping us to raise our awareness of activities that are good for us and those that are bad.

Francesco Mosconi at TEDxTransmedia 2013


Quantified Self is a movement that proposes to help us understand how our body and mind react and oscillate during the journey of life. It is wearable technology that helps us keep track of aspects of our lives. Sensors are getting smaller and smaller so we can now track things that were unable to track five years ago.

Francesco Mosconi at TEDxTransmedia 2013


We are constantly bombarded by information, technology and the media we interact with are constantly pushing information on us. It is like hundreds of bells, constantly ringing and distracting us. Modern technology is often perceived as a limit yet it defines the world we live in. If we learn to harness and use that technology it can enable us to live more mindfully and more happily.
