The event took place on October 24 at the Audimax of the TUM. About 500 attendees enjoyed an exciting all-day program of 14 speakers and performances. Check out all the details here.
A facet is a flat surface on a gem: a calculable, geometric unit. It is also a specific aspect of a personality trait: an incalculable, emotional perception. But only together do these singular facets form beautiful gems; each of them differently built, reflecting the light in their own unique way, and shining bright.
In their singularities, all gems are extraordinary; much like our lives. We constantly balance between the predictable symmetry of our ideas and the capricious glitter of our reality. In all of these facets, we sense the rational and the emotional – facts, technology, and economy – but also the roles, culture, and values they contain. We see the inevitable balance of all edges forming a whole, and feel the volatile aspects of what is contained in the dynamics of life: the many different roles we assume in our visions and plans. Every new idea is an additional facet and shapes another perspective- even more so if these ideas are shared throughout the world.
At TEDxTUM 2015, we thus want to explore facets from the lives of various people with different backgrounds, and facilitate the emergence of new ideas worth spreading.
