Artist Aaron Kob­lin takes vast amounts of data — and at times vast num­bers of people — and weaves them into stun­ning visu­al­iz­a­tions. From eleg­ant lines tra­cing air­line flights to land­scapes of cell phone data, from a Johnny Cash video assembled from crowd-sourced draw­ings to the “Wil­der­ness Down­town” video that cus­tom­izes for the user, his works bril­liantly explore how mod­ern tech­no­logy can make us more human.
