Think Inc. brings to Australian audiences futurist and explorer of the metaphysics of imagination, Jason Silva. Jason is set to to expound on the power of science, technology, philosophy and creativity in Sydney and Melbourne, as he challenges creativity, innovation, the co-evolution of human and technology, existentialism and the human condition. We’re also excited to have beloved triple j presenter, science enthusiast and Dr Karl Kruszelnicki’s right-hand woman Zan Rowe as the host for Jason Silva in Sydney and Melbourne! A staple of Australian radio, Zan presents Science Talk with Dr Karl, the country’s favourite science Q&A. She’ll be bringing her trademark wit and warmth to the stage, helping Jason explore some of the most fascinating aspect of our infinite world.
Futurist and ‘epiphany addict’ Jason Silva likes ideas, their tenacity, flexibility, their contagious nature, their impact and their ability to expand, procreate and evolve into new ideas. Silva has gained a huge following for his popularising takes on philosophy and the thrilling possibilities of creativity and technology.
Through his Shots of Awe series, Silva serves up invigorating shots of ‘philosophical espresso’ in a format designed to be short, infectious and easily spread - “think of them as inspired nuggets of techno-rapture”. In the collection of videos, Silva invites audiences to share his glee in the the rising and wondrous role of technology in amplifying intelligence and creativity. “We use our tools to extend our range of possibilities, we use our tools to extend our reach, to extend the impact on our consciousness, to extend our will. Technology is the human imagination turned inside out,” he says.
As the Emmy-nominated host of National Geographic Channel’s #1 rated and Emmy-nominated series, Brain Games, Silva left audiences in state of wonderment. Audiences have enjoyed his mind-bending insights through TED talks, SXSW lectures, Microsoft TechEd Australia presentations, a guest feature on Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Star Talk, and an appearance on Australia’s Q&A in 2012. Like all the best communicators, Silva’s strength is a tangible excitement for his subject matter. In his signature rapid-fire delivery style, he pulls from a vast mental repository of tech knowledge and quotes from fellow futurists and artists to create an exhilarating, immediate experience.
