Our speaker at the June 2012 CreativeMornings/NewYork was Jonathan Harris. (http://number27.org/)
Jonathan makes projects that reimagine how humans relate to technology and to each other.
Combining elements of computer science, anthropology, visual art and storytelling, his projects range from building the world’s largest time capsule (with Yahoo!) to documenting an Alaskan Eskimo whale hunt on the Arctic Ocean (with a warm hat).
He is the co-creator of We Feel Fine, which continuously measures the emotional temperature of the human world through large-scale blog analysis, and has made other projects about online dating, modern mythology, happiness, anonymity, news, and language. His latest project is Cowbird, a community of storytellers working to build a public library of human experience.
The event was generously hosted by Galapagos Art Space (http://galapagosartspace.com) in DUMBO, Brooklyn.
CreativeMornings is a monthly breakfast lecture series for creative types. Each event is free of charge, and includes a 20 minute talk, plus coffee! You can join us in numerous cities around the world. (http://creativemornings.com)
