Aaron Koblin spoke at "see conference 2009". 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.
An American media artist, Aaron Koblin specializes in the visualization of human systems. In projects such as Ten Thousand Cents and The Sheep Market he focuses on the role of the individual in the digital mass-society. He creates unique visual interpretations of data, such as the House of Cards music video for the rock band Radiohead, in which he scanned the environment with lasers, generating spatial data for an interactive 3D visualization. Aaron studied Design & Media Arts at UCLA and currently works for the Google Creative Lab in San Francisco. His work has been exhibited internationally in exhibitions at the MoMa in New York, Ars Electronica in Linz, and the Science and Technology Museum of Shanghai to name a few.
