Ben Fry spoke at "see conference 2008". The conference on "visualization of information", organized by digital creative agency Scholz & Volkmer, is dedicated to new approaches that are being developed in the fields of design, art, architecture, new technologies and economy to confront today's complexity and to transform the immense flood of information into useable knowledge. We annually invite speakers - a broad mix of approaches, ways of thinking, industries and cultures – to present their most recent ideas on how to deal with the current flood of information, on how to visualize it and turn it into something that can be experienced.

Ben Fry received his doctoral degree from the "Aesthetics and Computation Group" (ACG) of John Maeda at the MIT Media Lab. Together with Casey Reas, he developed the open source programming language "Processing" and was awarded with a Golden Nica at the Prix Ars Electronica 2005. His personal work has been shown at the MoMA in New York, it has appeared in the films "Minority Report" and "The Hulk"and illustrated articles for magazines like Seed or the New York Magazine. Ben Fry's background is a mixture of computer science, graphic design and data visualization. His fascinating work includes projects like "Anemone", a tool for organic data visualization, and "Genome Valence", a genomic cartography project to represent the data found in the human genome. In December 2007 he released his new book "Visualizing Data".
