In this presentation, Jer will dive deep into two large-scale projects he has worked on over the last year in New York City. First, he’ll talk about Project Cascade, a real-time analytic tool built to examine how New York Times content is shared through Twitter. Second, he’ll discuss his work designing a name arrangement algorithm for the 9/11 Memorial in Manhattan. He’ll walk through collaborative processes, admit to a series of spectacular failures and ultimately show how custom software tools can be made to solve extraordinary problems.
Jer Thorp is a software artist, writer, and educator living in Brooklyn. He is a co-founder of The Office for Creative Research & adjunct professor at ITP. bio from Twitter
