We often associate data with dehumanisation but, data artist, Aaron Koblin is out to prove that data can bring people and communities together with an intimacy previously unattainable.
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.
Aaron’s motivation is in keeping with our philosophy at Seefin DM; data is our potential for growth and evolution, not just professionally but personally and spiritually. If you’re curious how you could harness data for the betterment of your community and self, get in touch today.
