Aaron Koblin @ TED: Artfully visualizing our humanity


(Youtube Direktvisualize, via Brainpickings)

Noch ein schöner TED-Talk, den ich mir gestern nacht angesehen hatte: „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.“
