Wednesday, April 24th 2013. 6:00-9:00pm

location: Room 6418, The Graduate Center, 365 5th Ave, New York.

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.

Note: For students who wish to bring their own computers to the workshop, ImageJ runs on Macs, PCs and Lunix.
