In many ways, all forms of art are a deception - but they can put us into worlds and spaces we otherwise could never access

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic" - Arthur C. Clarke

If you haven't yet listened to a TED lecture, please listen to the one below and see what you think. All art, in one form or another, is a deception - just like the beautiful music that Luther Fuller played (http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2012/jul/06/grand-pianist-12-year-old-plays-through-blindness), despite the fact that he was blind. But it is a deception in a most positive way.

I will eventually be using TED talks as a supplement to digital learning (discussed in an earlier blog), in a much deeper discussion of child and adult-centered education. But right now, enjoy this TED talk and enjoy the amazing things that Marco Tempest can do.

And if Luther Fuller can play the piano so well, you can do something special too!

So, what is it exactly that Marco is trying to sell because I am not in the market, but thanks so much for using a free blog to do this. Are you just really economical, or a wanker?
