Artfully visualising our humanity — Aaron Koblin’s 18 minute TED talk.
It’s from March 2011, but I only watched it yesterday. Aaron talks about some projects he’s been working on that reflect on our lives and our systems. Imaginative viewing.
Flight Patterns. Mapping Airplane traffic over North America during a 24 hour period.
Atlanta airport Flight Patterns, coded by altitude
Bicycle Built For 2,000. Another (creepier) Mechanical Turk assignment.
The Johnny Cash Project. A superb global animation collaborative.
