Magnus Jonsson | TEDxTokyo 2011
Magnus Jonsson loves to see great ideas grow up. Renowned internationally as a forward thinker in the digital culture field, he’s been exploring the intersection of art, design and information and communications technology for over a decade in an applied research context, working with artists, designers, technology developers, scientists, philosophers and businesspeople. His work spurred a fresh wave of collaborative art design and digital technology research that resulted in new startup businesses, production methods and high-profile art exhibitions at MOMA San Francisco, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and ICA London. Magnus joined Sweden’s Interactive Institute in 2000, becoming studio director in 2005.
He hopes his latest grand challenge, Ocean Search—a collaborative, crowd-sourced fleet of vessels equipped with advanced research tools that will collect climate data on the state of our oceans—will generate greater awareness of and commitment to their preservation.
