There is a critical need for new tools and techniques to visualize, filter, interpret, and share high-dimensional datasets. This talk will discuss the use of gesture and a 320° immersive workspace at Oblong Industries to prototype, design, and build real-time, interactive, software-based environments that explore datasets from early heart formation to the news.

John Carpenter is an artist, designer, and educator who works with code and software to create visualizations of the world around him. Based in Los Angeles, he works for HRL Laboratories, and is a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts. Prior to joining HRL, Carpenter worked at Oblong Industries prototyping and building gesture-based, interactive, real-time, immersive visualizations, and interfaces. He has also worked at Morphosis Architects and the Biological Imaging Center at the California Institute of Technology. He earned his MFA from the department of Design Media Arts at UCLA, and his BS in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Arizona.
