Aaron Koblin

Aaron Koblin (b. 1982, USA) is an artist specialising in data visualisation. Koblin's work has been shown at international festivals including Ars Electronica, SIGGRAPH, OFFF, the Japan Media Arts Festival and TED. He received the National Science Foundation's first place award for science visualisation and his work is part of the permanent collection of MoMA, New York. Other work includes visualisations for the New York Talk Exchange, a project by the SENSEable City Lab at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Bicycle Built for Two Thousand with Daniel Massey, an online project which records voices across the globe singing together.

Flight Patterns, 2009
About the work: Koblin specialises in taking unreadable computational data and making visualisations with it. Flight Patterns is a record of aeroplane journeys across North America over a 24-hour period. He sourced data from the Federal Aviation

Administration on 205,000 flights on 12 August 2008. Each one of the tiny colourful threads streaming across the wall represents hundreds of people, flights and cargo as they travel across the airspace of the United States.
