I’m attending the Pop!Tech conference here in Camden, Maine. There are many remarkable speakers here, like Steven Pinker and Daniel Pink, but what I am most surprised by is the “human renderer” who sits in the upper-right balcony of the proceedings.
The artist paints images that convey the spirit of each talk in real time with color and words. I think the fact that each image is not a literal interpretation of the speaker’s presentation feels fresh. Very iki.
