Aaron Koblin on visualizing humanity

May 27, 2011  |  Data Art

Aaron Koblin, Creative Director of Google's Data Arts team, shares some of the many projects that he's worked on his recent TED talk (video below). Even if you don't know the name, you've undoubtedly come across his work. The takeaway of his talk:

An interface can be a powerful narrative device, and as we collect more personally and socially relevant data, we have an opportunity and maybe even an obligation to maintain a humanity and tell some amazing stories as we explore and collaborate together.

It's not all facts and figures, dontcha know.
