#ProtectingSight #346: The infinite alchemy of storytelling. Young cataract patients, toxic optic neuropathy, & “CAT MUDPILES.”

Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Zahra Al-Mahdi: The infinite alchemy of storytelling. “TED Fellow Zahra Al-Mahdi was raised by screens — “storytelling machines” like TV and the internet that shaped her sense of self and reality. Now a multimedia artist and filmmaker, she challenges common historical narratives and brings a multiplicity of perspectives to the surface. In this dynamic talk, Al-Mahdi traces her development as a storyteller using satire, dark humor and tactile collage techniques to expand what we think we know about ourselves.” (ted.com)

Fast-paced and insightful talk (4 minutes).
