Planet Indy: Temple Grandin on Visual Thinking and Animal Behavior
Author, scientist, and animal welfare advocate Temple Grandin brings a unique perspective to the IMA’s Planet Indy series. She describes visual ways of processing experience and how her own thinking as a person living with Autism led her to become the designer of more humane livestock handling facilities throughout North America. The animals in these facilities are calm and comfortable; they die a swift, painless death. The result is meat that many experts believe to be healthier for the people who consume it. Grandin’s best-selling books include Thinking in Pictures, Animals in Translation and Animals Make Us Human. The 2010 HBO film biography, Temple Grandin, recently won seven Emmy Awards.
