Living Portraits of the Human World: A presentation with JONATHAN HARRIS, computer scientist, storyteller, statistician, designer and Cowbird creator

Jonathan Harris makes projects that reimagine how humans relate to technology and to each other.  Combining elements of computer science, anthropology, visual art and storytelling, his projects range from building the world’s largest time capsule to documenting an Alaskan Eskimo whale hunt on the Arctic Ocean. He is the co-creator of We Feel Fine, which measures the emotional temperature of the human world through large-scale blog analysis, and created recent projects about online dating, modern mythology, anonymity, news and language.
