Dr. Harald Klinke, M.Sc., Digital Art History, LMU Munich, Germany

The central method in digital art history and the analysis of digital visual culture today is “distant
viewing”—the overview of a corpus. It allows the identification of structures and clusters and the
drill-down on the individual object that might be of particular interest. This type of visual analysis is based on image plots and t-SNE maps.

The creation of these meta-images usually requires programming skills and experience in
dimensionality reduction and in neural networks. This workshop makes it easy to analyze collection data on a mere visual level. Bring your own data, no programming skills required.

Dr. Harald Klinke, M.Sc. studied art history, media theory, painting, philosophy and business
informatics in Karlsruhe, Berlin, Göttingen and Norwich (UK). From 2008 to 2009, he worked as a
Lecturer of Visual Studies (Bildwissenschaft) at the Art History Department at the University of
Göttingen, where he developed the modules for the key qualification “Visual Literacy”. From 2009 to 2010, he conducted research, supported by a grant from the German Research Foundation, as a Visiting Scholar at Columbia University, New York. He is editor-in-chief of th... [show more]

Francesca Albrezzi, PhD, Office of Advanced Research Computing (OARC), UCLA

Augmented reality (AR) is the layering of computer-generated perceptual information onto real environments. The experience requires a level of interactivity and sensory engagement. AR is being adopted across the fields of architecture and engineering, as well as adopted by artists and curators to make creative connections between our shared reality and that of innumerable virtual worlds.

This workshop will introduce participants to the design and mechanics of augmented reality. We will focus on working with images, bringing digital objects into live environments through the use of the Artivive app. Attendees will create free Artivive accounts and learn to create an AR animation. No prior technical experience necessary.
