Cool Hunting Video Presents: Jonathan Harris

Fresh off of an enlightening speech at the TED conference, Jonathan Harris shows us the analog basis of his large-scale digital emotion analyzer called We Feel Fine

by Cool Hunting Video in Culture on 16 March 2007

A Cool Hunting exclusive, we caught up with artist Jonathan Harris as he unveils his new project Universe, an artistic take on a system that explores modern mythology. He enlightened minds with his presentation at the TED conference last week and we visited him in Brooklyn to get an intimate look as he flips through his travelogue of time spent in Vietnam and Burma. We are also guided through We Feel Fine, a global study of human emotion using large-scale blog analysis, and he volunteers his creative thought process behind the piece. He also shares his view for the future of connectivity, why the page is no longer enough and his drive toward new formats of presentation and story telling.

This also marks Cool Hunting Video's debut in HD meaning improved picture quality and widescreen 16 by 9 formatting. Enjoy.
