==Jer Thorp==
 
(from [http://www.thelavinagency.com/speaker-jer-thorp.htm here]:) [http://blog.blprnt.com Jer Thorp] is a data artist whose work focuses on adding narrative meaning to huge amounts of data. In other words, he makes data more human. Through cutting edge data visualization techniques, Thorp helps people and corporations take control of the information that surrounds them, using technology and data as a new way to tell stories. Originally from Vancouver, Jer lives in New York City, where he teaches in NYU’s ITP program. To investigate the results of Big Data, Thorp helped launch [The Office for Creative Research http://o-c-r.org/abstract/] with his peers. From 2010-2012, he was the Data Artist in Residence at The New York Times. Thorp's software-based art has been featured all over the world. His art brings big data sets to life, combining state-of-the-art science with a natural interest in the human condition. His “Cascade” project at The New York Times visualizes the sharing of content through social media, offering tremendous insight into the way we use digital networks to share, influence, and connect with others. He was also a major contributor to the 9/11 memorial project in New York City, where he wrote a program that organized the names of victims not by alphabetical order, but by relationships—putting coworkers next to coworkers, and brothers next to brothers. Thorp’s award-winning software-based work has been exhibited in Europe, Asia, North America, South America, including in the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan.
