About the Workshop

In 2007 Lev Manovich established Software Studies Initiative to develop "Cultural Analytics" - intuitive visual techniques and software tools for exploring massive sets of cultural images and video in new ways. The examples of lab work include visualization of artistic development of van Gogh, Mondrian, Rothko and other artists; mapping the "design space" of variations in hundreds of Google logos; exploring visual languages of manga by analyzing one million manga pages; and many other projects which take on everything from motion graphics to 19th century American newspapers. The lab received grants from both National Science Foundation (NEH) and National Science Foundation, and its visualizations have been included in many exhibitions.

In this workshop Manovich will lead the participants though the number of lab's project, discussing the methods and practical techniques which make them possible. Participants will be introduced to powerful open source ImageJ digital image processing platform used in all these projects, and the lab's recently released free ImagePlot software.
