Hasan Elahi visited our campus for the past two days as part of the Monmouth University’s ART NOW campus programming and he was a guest lecturer in our Responsive Media class last night. He talked about how technological innovation often comes from artists decades before they are adopted by widespread audiences. Elahi’s own work focused on an artistic use of self-surveillance, technological tracking, and mapping. Learn how about his story and work here: https://www.ted.com/talks/hasan_elahi
He taught us how to use Google Maps to self-publish crowd-sourced maps and we performed an exercise where we critically examined our campus in a timed observation and then mapped the results.
