Maria Lantin | I Am Afraid | TEDxECUAD Presentation

Maria Lantin was invited to present, I AM AFRAID, during the TEDxECUAD: Bringing the Gap conference on March 25, 2017 at the Emily Carr University of Art + Design, in Vancouver, BC.

TEDxECUAD’s mission is to bring together a dynamic group of thinkers and doers in a provocative setting that builds new connections to lead to progress and collaboration, and take participants to a next level of thought and action. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection.

Maria later served as assistant professor at TechBC, senior researcher at Mainframe Entertainment developing 3D-stereo projection software for IMAX screens, and research director at award winning IDELIX Software Inc., one of the few successful visualization companies. Lantin led Banff Centre’s Visualization Lab for 3 years and now directs Intersections Digital Studio where she helps create an inspiring and welcoming environment for interdisciplinary research at Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
