I put together a new set of slides explaining theory and methods used in out lab to explore large visual cultural datasets. The slides includes visualizations from many of our projects (created internally by our lab or in collaboration with other researchers and designers.) The projects cover both social media (millions of Instagram images), contemporary popular culture (1 M manga pages) and digitized historical artworks (for example, 5000 paintings of French Impressionist artists).
You can download the slides in Keynote, Powerpoint, or PDF formats from Dropbox:
