Helen Marriage‘s mission is to create real experiences; moments that are actually memorable. Through her company, Artichoke, her public art projects use imagination to access spaces and forever change how we feel about them. In this TED talk, she shares her ideas on convincing people to value shared artistic experiences.
Transform the physical world using the imagination of the artist to show us what is possible
Visual artist Helen Marriage stages astonishing, large-scale public art events that expand the boundaries of what’s possible. In this visual tour of her work, she tells the story of three cities she transformed into playgrounds of the imagination – picture London with a giant mechanical elephant marching through it – and shows what happens when people stop to marvel and experience a moment together.
