The world seems more fragmented than ever, but to Jer Thorp one of the world’s most innovative artists, those fragments are data—and data can be read, organized, and used for good. Twitter, Microsoft, and The New York Times have all turned to him to analyze their data and create visual maps to show meaning being metrics.
By creating multi-dimensional, visually stunning projects (often using hundreds of square feet of imagery and billions of pieces of data), Thorp makes data accessible, enabling all of us to change the way we think and act in relation to the information around us. Jer Thorp will be kicking off the HIM Conference 2020 on day one. Visit himconference.ca to be the first to know when tickets go on sale!
