FILE LABO WORKSHOP SERIES 2009

From now on FILE Labo will be part of the FILE Exhibition with a special space dedicated to a reflexive and practical view about the digital art media field. This initiative coincides with the foundation of workshops with important artists and theoreticians from the digital art and new media field inside the exhibition gallery of FILE 2009. The goal of bringing FILE Labo close to the visitors is to show a unknown fact for most of the people that attend the Festival: the programming and the creation of the pieces are a hard work that involves a deep technological comprehension combined with a strong debate about the state of art and its contemporary developments.

++ WORKSHOPS:

LOCATIVE MEDIA: THEORY AND PRACTICE

CULTURAL ANALYTICS
Lev Manovich (UCSD/Software Studies)
07/30 & 31 | 9am – 1pm

Today sciences, business, governments and other agencies rely on computer-based analysis and visualization of large data sets and data flows. They employ statistical data analysis, data mining, information visualization, scientific visualization, visual analytics, and simulation. We believe that it is time that we start applying these techniques to cultural data. The large data sets are already here the result of the digitization efforts by museums, libraries, and companies over the last ten years (think of book scanning by Google and Amazon) and the explosive growth of newly available cultural content on the web. The workshop will provide the tools for the participants create their own analysis of the data and also to create their own visualization of the collected data.
