TED Talk on Iconography

By Jonathan Pageau on December 20, 2012

Lynette Hull, an American iconographer part of the Prosopon School has recently given a twenty minute presentation on Iconography which is part of a TEDx event.

TED is a hip technology, education and design non-profit organization that gives conferences and organizes events. It is seen as the leading place to get a glimpse of new burgeoning ideas.

Needless to say, this is not the usual crowd for discussing things like noetic ability and sacred symbolism.  Lynette adresses the issue by suggesting that Apple’s Steve Jobs’ move towards graffic user interface, (GUI) or “icons” was a break in rationalistic thinking and is linked somehow to noetic possibilities.

She walks a tricky line facing what is probably not a very receptive audience.  It is a bold move and it comes out as something that is bound to create thought and discussion.
