"Aaron Koblin: Artfully visualizing our humanity"
"Artist Aaron Koblin takes vast amounts of data -- and at times vast numbers of people -- and weaves them into stunning visualizations. From elegant lines tracing airline flights to landscapes of cell phone data, from a Johnny Cash video assembled from crowd-sourced drawings to the "Wilderness Downtown" video that customizes for the user, his works brilliantly explore how modern technology can make us more human."
Mines how data can be captured and designed by artistry to make it more meaningful, and interrogates the intersections between data collection, design, art, and imagination.
Notes that present and future interfaces are what define humanity in large part--as opposed to other past technologies.
