Human journeys hold fascinated insights for us, from our earliest migrations out of Africa 60,000 to 80,000 years ago through to our movement around modern cities, migration between countries and a rapidly accelerating move to autonomous transport. Many of these journeys are voluntary, many of them are or will be forced upon us, yet whatever the reason the underlying stories are often compelling to us.
I am fascinated by data and the insights that it brings, some of these insights are explainable, some are subjective, and some are purely to be observed so that we can make our own stories. My aim is to bring large and complex datasets to life through a mix of data science and Artificial Intelligence approaches and fuse them with art to create unique and compelling pieces that not only tell a story but also provokes us to ask questions.
In this, my first collection, my vision is to bring to life the very essence of modern life starting with the cosmopolitan city of New York and visualising the taxi journeys taken by tens of thousands of people every day, hundreds of thousands of people every month.
I invite you to ask your own questions. What do you see? For those who live outside of New York City, what would it mean for you? Imagine life in this place, where would you live and where would you work? What would you change? What stories would you make up about life there?
