The former Abramowitz Artist in Residence delivers a lecture entitled "Crowds and Clouds: Data, Sheep, and Collaboration"

2010-11 Abramowitz Artist in Residence, infographics wizard Aaron Koblin gave a public lecture entitled "Crowds and Clouds: Data, Sheep, and Collaboration in the Works of Aaron Koblin" at the Ray and Maria Stata Center on Sept. 30, 2010. This video includes excerpts from that talk which features Koblin discuss data trails and our changing relationship with data. Of special note, Koblin describes his ongoing crowdsourcing project on Johnny Cash, which invites people to create a drawing that is woven into a collective tribute to Cash that's set to his song "Ain't No Grave." No stranger to music projects, Koblin also was the technical director for Radiohead's "House of Cards" video. View Koblin's lecture in its entirety at MIT World.
