Combining elements of computer science, anthropology, visual art and storytelling, Jonathan Harris designs systems to explore and explain the human world. He has made projects about human emotion, human desire, modern mythology, science, news, anonymity and language, and created the world's largest time capsule, which was translated into 10 languages. He studied computer science at Princeton University, and was awarded a 2004 Fabrica fellowship.
