MARCOS WESKAMP

After completing his studies in Graphic Design the Argentinean worked for agencies such as Bascule, Razorfish and Dentsu. The self-taught web designer has created some of the most interesting flash applications such as Flick Graph, Habitat Perspectives, or Newsmap. The latter has been awarded at the Ars Electronica 2004. At the see conference #2 Weskamp presented his projects “Social Circles” and “Flickr Graph” which aim to visualize social networks and the interrelations and social hierarchies among the members of online communities. His objective is to filter information from abstract data matter and use his applications to make it visible in a new, surprising way.

PATRICK SCHÖNEMANN

Nowadays tourists can virtually discover the earth with Google Earth and Google Maps. However, these applications don’t live up to their full potential if they are only used by viewers, as they have the potential to develop a universal archive for all world events. Patrick Schönemann from Google Germany, who since 2006 has been in charge of the Enterprise solutions Google Maps and Google Earth, gave an outlook on where this journey may take us.
