Aaron Koblin

Aaron Koblin is an artist specializing in data and digital technologies. His work takes real world and community-generated data and uses it to reflect on cultural trends and the changing relationship between humans and technology.

He uses computer softwares to visualise data. Again, just like with Casey Reas’ work i feel like it could be abstract art as well although Koblins work looks more digital. In the visualisation above he collected data from flight in the United States.

The Sheep Market is a collection of 10,000 sheep created by workers on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. Each worker was paid $.02 (US) to “draw a sheep facing left.”
