Seeing Beyond the Illusion of Knowledge. Jason Latimer, TEDxWallStreet, 2013.
Jason Latimer has spent his entire life wondering about one question, “What is possible?” In the pursuit of answering that childhood question, Latimer’s ongoing education spans multiple fields of science including mathematics, applied physics, chemistry, perceptual psychology, and economics. Jason’s research, work, and performances have ushered in entirely new genre of magic and illusion for the twenty-first century rooted in applied sciences. “…The secret to bringing impossible situations to life is wonder. …Wonder is the first step in the evolution of science, mathematics, art, medicine, and everyday life. Wonder changes the world. It makes us challenge what we know… I didn’t become a magician to trick anyone. I want to inspire wonder.” – Jason Latimer
