Lens Media Lab Symposium: Darkroom to Data

The Lens Media Lab at Yale's Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage invites you to its symposium DARKROOM TO DATA, to be held in New Haven on August 12, 2024. The program will feature the lab's research into the material history of black and white photography and will highlight our principal collaborations among leading collections. The theme of this work is "seeing at scale" through the creation and interpretation of datasets that surface patterns latent in photograph collections. These patterns inform our thinking of preservation, artistic intention, regional practices, and the influence of materials and methods shared by photographers across time.  The intended audience is art historians, conservators, conservation scientists, collectors, curators, dealers and anyone interested in data science and data visualization applied to the study of cultural material.  Program details and a link for registration are here. Advance registration is required and is free of charge.
