Evolution’s Gift of Play: Isabel Behncke Izquierdo at TED2011

In this talk given at TED2011 — which took place a few weeks ago in Long Beach, California — primatologist Isabel Behncke Izquierdo reflects on the risqué, contemplative and entirely familiar playfulness of the bonodo apes she studies in DR Congo. The theme of the conference was The Rediscovery of Wonder.

Play is a shapeshifter and it can take many forms, some of which are more quiet, imaginative, curious — maybe where wonder is discovered anew.

So, as the video interface itself says, ‘click to play’. [via ThinkFun SmartPlay]
