Artfully Visualizing our Humanity: 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.

Shea Hembrey: How I became 100 artists

One of my favorites from 
"How do you stage an international art show with work from 100 different artists?
If you're Shea Hembrey, you invent all of the artists and artwork yourself
 from large-scale outdoor installations to tiny paintings drawn with a single-haired brush.
Watch this funny, mind-bending talk to see the explosion of creativity and diversity of skills
a single artist is capable of."
Shea does go on a bit at the beginning - but once he gets into showing the work,
my the time do fly!

Shiloh blogs for real!

Have a gander at my new pal Shiloh's blog Context.
I think that you'll be glad that you did.
