Marcos Wescamp spoke at "see conference 2007". 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.
After completing his studies in Graphic Design Marcos Wescamp worked for agencies such as Bascule, Razorfish and Dentsu. The Argentinean and self-taught web designer has created some of the most interesting flash applications such as Flick Graph, Habitat Perspectives, or Newsmap. The latter has been awarded at the Ars Electronica 2004. At the see conference #2 Weskamp presented his projects "Social Circles" and "Flickr Graph" which aim to visualize social networks and the interrelations and social hierarchies among the members of online communities. His objective is to filter information from abstract data matter and use his applications to make it visible in a new, surprising way.
