“Seeing the Unseen” presented by Michael Fagans    

Too often we walk past things without seeing them for what they are or what they could be. Expanding how we think about images allows us to see the world in a different and broader way. This SouthTalk is an expansion of Fagans’s University of Mississippi TEDx talk, allowing for interaction and conversation with attendees.
