Asst. Prof. Dale Konstanz, Assistant Dean for Research of Mahidol University International College (MUIC), will be one of the speakers in the TEDx Mahidol event on November 3, 2018 at the College of Music Auditorium.
The topic of his talk would be “Everyday Art of Appreciation” where he plans to present several photos that he had taken in Bangkok taxis; his book “Thai Taxi Talismans;” his blog, “Still Life in Moving Vehicles;” his limited edition photo book, “Rearview Portraits;” and others.
According to him, “[I realized] that you can turn ordinary, dull, and sometimes frustrating experiences that we face everyday into moments of appreciation. By applying skills of appreciating art, this ‘attitude of gratitude’ in the taxis has extended to other parts of my life. It has led to a better sense of well-being, contentment, and connectedness to the present. At the end of the talk, I will walk the audience through the process of appreciation, so that everyone can apply this to their daily life.”
