Jer Thorp’s award-winning software-based art combines cutting-edge science with a natural interest in the human condition. From graphing an entire year’s news cycle to organizing names on the 9/11 Memorial in New York City, Thorp’s data artworks and visualization projects help people and corporations take control of the information that surrounds them, using technology and data as a new way to tell stories. Thorp teaches in New York University’s Interactive Telecommunications Program and served as Data Artist-in-Residence at The New York Times. His work has been featured in the Museum of Modern Art in New York and throughout the world. This event is sponsored by Newcomb-Tulane College Office at Tulane University, and presented as part of the Crossroads Colloquium, a forum for interdisciplinary conversation on issues of relevance to both humanities and sciences. This event will take place at Tulane University, at Freeman Auditorium in the Woldenberg Art Center (driving directions: bit.ly/freemanauditorium). Free and open to the public, with a reception to follow. For more information, email email@example.com.
