Visualizing Image & Video Collections

Wednesday, April 24th 2013 – 6:00-9:00pm; Room 6418

Guest Instructor: Lev Manovich
This workshop will cover recently developed visualization techniques for exploring image and video collections of any size – from a few dozens to millions of images.  We will use open source free ImageJ software with the custom tools developed in Lev Manovich’s lab ( The techniques have already been used in variety of fields, including art history, film and media studies, digital culture studies, game studies, and linguistics. The participants will also be introduced to digital image processing – the use of computers to automatically analyze images.

If you would like to attend the workshop, please RSVP here: Eventbrite

Note: For students who wish to bring their own computers to the workshop, ImageJ runs well on Macs and can be downloaded very quickly (5.7MB). Students will be given the opportunity to download ImageJ at the beginning of the workshop.
