In November 2022 I was invited to give a short talk about my work at a TEDx meeting in Arendal, on the south coast of Norway.
The video of my talk has just been released and have great pleasure in sharing it here (time: 15 mins approx)
In the days before photography silhouettes were the only kind of self-image which mots people ever saw. For this reason silhouettes were once extremely popular!
In this talk I demonstrate how to cut a silhouette before going on the explore this popularity in relation to the fascinating, but now discredited pseudo-science of physiognomy.
That’s amazing Charles! It’s over ten years since you cut silhouettes of my party guests, and I’ve known you longer, but it still blows my mind every time I see you appear so nonchalant yet execute perfectly the cutting of a profile. A brilliant TED talk!
Thank you James, great to hear from you.
I thoroughly enjoyed your very engaging and informative talk. Your knowledge, enthusiasm and skill always enthralls me. An excellent talk. Well done and I look forward to your next production.
Thank you Andrew. I’d love to do more of these, do let me know of any suitable audiences!
