    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.

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. When is the visualization better than the thing? Under this headline American science fiction author Bruce Sterling questioned whether we still need physical objects at all, and whether visualizations or virtual objects might start giving us the same physical effects than real things. Sterling has been one of the founders of the 80's cyberpunk movement in science fiction, best known for his work on the "Mirrorshades anthology". He has been the instigator of various political and ecological projects such as the Dead Media Project - a collection of "research notes" on dead media technologies, the Viridian Design Movement - his attempt to create a "green" design movement focused on high-tech, stylish, and ecological sound design, or "Embrace the Decay" - an art piece commissioned by the LA Museum of Contemporary Art in 2003. Sterling has written for many magazines, including Newsweek, Fortune, or Wired, where he has been a contributing writer since its conception. He has appeared in shows like ABC's Nightline, BBS's The Late Show, CBC's Morningside, or on MTV. More Info at http://www.see-conference.org Organized by Scholz & Volkmer: http://www.s-v.de

The American artist Casey Reas is considered a pioneer in the development of aesthetic software. Firstly, he presented his programming language 'Processing', which he developed in collaboration with Ben Fry and Doug Bennett. And, with his latest work, he demonstrated a way to create impressive art from algorithms and dynamic software. Reas' approach is a very experimental one, he is working with dynamic software that independently reacts to changes in its environment, and with systems that are neither programmed nor predictable, but only react to interferences of the user. Casey Reas a professor in the department of Design Media Arts at UCLA and one of the founding professors of the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea.
