ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Rives - Performance poet, multimedia artist
Performance artist and storyteller Rives has been called "the first 2.0 poet," using images, video and technology to bring his words to life.

Why you should listen

Part poet, part storyteller, part philosopher, Rives is the co-host of TEDActive as well as a frequent TED speaker. On stage, his poems burst in many directions, exposing multiple layers and unexpected treats: childhood memories, grown-up humor, notions of love and lust, of what is lost forever and of what's still out there waiting to unfold. Chimborazo.

A regular on HBO's Def Poetry Jam, Rives also starred alongside model Bar Refaeli in the 2008 Bravo special Ironic Iconic America, touring the United States on a "roller coaster ride through the eye-popping panorama of American pop culture." Flat pages can't contain his storytelling, even when paper is his medium. The pop-up books he creates for children unfold with surprise: The Christmas Pop-Up Present expands to reveal moving parts, hidden areas and miniature booklets inside. 

His latest project—the Museum of Four in the Morning—is an ode to a time that may well be part of a global conspiracy. In a good way.

1688
在和我开玩笑。
01:34
Some people get a number stuck卡住 in their head,
42
82818
1491
一些人脑海中有一个数字挥之不去,
01:36
you may可能 recognize认识 a certain某些 name名称 or a tune,
43
84309
2605
你可能会选择一个特定的名字或音符,
01:38
some people get nothing, but four in the morning早上
44
86914
1785
一些人什么都记不住,但是凌晨四点钟
01:40
was in me now, but mildly温和,
45
88699
2901
就在我脑海里,轻轻地,
01:43
like a groin腹股沟 injury.
46
91600
2514
像穹窿般地划下一痕
01:46
I always assumed假定 it would just go away
47
94114
1472
我常常想这感觉很快
01:47
on its own拥有 eventually终于,
48
95586
1509
就会自己逐渐消失了,
01:49
and I never talked about it with anybody任何人,
49
97095
1586
而且我从来没和任何人讨论过这些,
01:50
but it did not, and I totally完全 did.
50
98681
3552
但是它没有,而我和别人说了这件事。
01:54
In 2007, I was invited邀请 to speak说话 at TEDTED
51
102233
2081
2007年,我被TED邀请去做演讲
01:56
for the second第二 time,
52
104314
916
那是第二次,
01:57
and since以来 I was still an authority权威 on nothing,
53
105230
2502
因为我并不是任何领域的权威人物,
01:59
I thought, what if I made制作 a multimedia多媒体 presentation介绍
54
107732
3391
我想,我可以做一个多媒体的演示,
02:03
on a topic话题 so niche壁龛
55
111123
1588
在一个不太重要的话题上
02:04
it is actually其实 inconsequential无关紧要
56
112711
1847
这实际上无关紧要
02:06
or actually其实 cockamamie繁琐.
57
114558
1413
或者实际上很繁琐。
02:07
So my talk had some of my
four in the morning早上 examples例子,
58
115971
3176
所以我的演讲有着许多我所经历”凌晨四点“的例子,
02:11
but it also had examples例子
59
119147
1378
但是其中也包含了一些例子
02:12
from my fellow同伴 TEDTED speakers音箱 that year.

66
130643
1437
尽管迈特.格拉宁之后告诉我
02:24
that he could not make my talk
67
132080
818
他不能来听我的演讲
02:24
because it was a morning早上 session会议
68
132898
1764
因为是清晨的时间段
02:26
and I gather收集 that he is not an early riser立管.
69
134662
2720
我知道他不是一个早起的人。
02:29
However然而, had Matt马特 been there,
70
137382

然而,如果迈特来过这里,
02:32
he would have seen看到 this mock嘲笑 conspiracy阴谋 theory理论
71
140970
2978
他就可以看到这个虚拟的理论
02:35
that was un-freaking-canny未吓坏,精明 for me to assemble集合.
72
143948
2615
那是我多么用心才构建起来的。
02:38
It was totally完全 contrived做作

1161
而这完全是瞎编的
02:39
just for that room房间, just for that moment时刻.
74
147724
2016
仅仅是那个房间,仅仅在那个时刻。
02:41
That's how we did it in the pre-TED预TED.comCOM days.

2157
这是我们在为TED演讲做准备的那些天。
02:43
It was fun开玩笑. That was pretty漂亮 much it.
76

那很有意思。大概就这样了。
02:46
When I got home, though虽然,
the emails电子邮件 started开始 coming未来 in

1672
或许这是一些陈词滥调
04:43
that had never been taxonomizedtaxonomized before.
134
271591
1848
只是从前从未被归类。
04:45
Maybe I was on the trail落后

ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Rives - Performance poet, multimedia artist
Performance artist and storyteller Rives has been called "the first 2.0 poet," using images, video and technology to bring his words to life.

Why you should listen

Part poet, part storyteller, part philosopher, Rives is the co-host of TEDActive as well as a frequent TED speaker. On stage, his poems burst in many directions, exposing multiple layers and unexpected treats: childhood memories, grown-up humor, notions of love and lust, of what is lost forever and of what's still out there waiting to unfold. Chimborazo.

A regular on HBO's Def Poetry Jam, Rives also starred alongside model Bar Refaeli in the 2008 Bravo special Ironic Iconic America, touring the United States on a "roller coaster ride through the eye-popping panorama of American pop culture." Flat pages can't contain his storytelling, even when paper is his medium. The pop-up books he creates for children unfold with surprise: The Christmas Pop-Up Present expands to reveal moving parts, hidden areas and miniature booklets inside. 

His latest project—the Museum of Four in the Morning—is an ode to a time that may well be part of a global conspiracy. In a good way.
