You Are Here – but that's just for now, isn't it? Performance poet Alfie Gelbard presents through spoken-word the difficulty of leaving a mark in an ever-shifting, always rushing, digital new world. Stay on for a second poem ("My Robot Lover") inspired by all other speakers of TedXBGU Fingerprints event.

Currently, he is part of a psychobiology research lab, and working on a Master's thesis in the Psychology of Sexuality and Gender at the Lautman Interdisciplinary Program for Excelling Students at Tel Aviv University.

Gelbard is a 2015 European Universities Debating Championship finalist and a 2015 Israel Universities Debating Championship finalist.
