I have always appreciated the ability of artists to convey a message in a new way, or approaching a topic from a new perspective. I also love TED talks.

Erik Johannson uses perceptive, psychological, and editing trickery to combine traditional photographs to produce images which we know are impossible, but which we can't help but think are not.
I would strongly advise watching this for anyone inclined toward photography (or art in general), psychology, creative approaches, or even the curious individual; here is the link
