Blog posts, tweets, statuses, pins…are all digital footprints. Often loosely arranged, occasionally they knit together as the new “timelines” of our emotional lives. The stories they tell can be dreamy, cringeworthy or not *exactly* how it happened. Jonathan Harris at TED shows his “photographic heartbeat” project, The Whale Hunt, that poetically blurs the lines between data viz, heart-rates, art, computer science and emotion. He calls it “an experiment in human storytelling”, we call it beautiful.
