Original Thinkers: Presenting Adam Horowitz on Dreams!

Telluride-based Original Thinkers is a fresh and thoughtful ideas festival regularly scheduled for early October in Telluride. The weekend generally features 10 programs, each built around a particular idea explored through a compelling mix of speakers, films, performance, and art. The program typically delves into the human condition by focusing on the intersection of ideas and individual stories.

As Original Thinkers founder and ringleader David Holbrooke has said about the event he founded: “There are deep and universal truths in our own lives that we know will resonate with anyone and when we find those stories and showcase them, they provide an indelible experience for an audience.”

The following is a note from David. His conversation with Adam Horowitz, a presenter at Original Thinkers, is here.

Dear Original Thinkers –

What did you dream about last night?

Adam Horowitz studies dreams and is doing a lot of deep and fascinating work on the subject for the MIT Media Lab.

Adam spoke at OT2020 about this research and how much our understanding of how we spend our nights is advancing. His research also inspired a short film by the eminent director Taika Waititi, an original thinker for sure. Taika made the brilliant “Jojo Rabbit” and the deviously clever Vampire mockumentary, “What We Do in the Shadows.”

Watch Adam’s talk and then check out Taika’s offbeat, engaging short,“Lucid Odyssey” which tries to capture someone’s dreamscape.

Thanks for watching and take good care.
