David Stork Lecture: Computer Vision in the Study of Art: New Rigorous Approaches to the Study of Paintings and Drawings

What can computers reveal about images that even the best-trained connoisseurs, art historians and artist cannot? How much more powerful and revealing will these methods become? In short, how is the "hard humanities" field of computer image and analysis of art changing our understanding of paintings and drawings? David Stork's lecture will include computer vision, pattern recognition and image analysis of works by Jackson Pollock, Vincent van Gogh, Jan van Eyck, Hans Memling, Lorenzo Lott, and several others. You may never see paintings the same way again. Sponsored by Bowdoin's Digital and Computational Studies Initiative.

Matthew W. Wilson Lecture: Quantified Self-City-Nation: Digital Systems for Attentional Control

Matthew Wilson's presentation draws parallels between the rising consumer-electronic sector associated with personal activity monitors and the rapid visioning of smart urbanism. He interrogates developments in interoperability and propriety, competition and habit, fashion and surveillance. He addresses the social-cultural and political implications for this refiguring of spatial thought and action as well as the capacities reinforced and developed through the implementation of these technologies and techniques. Matthew Wilson is currently Visiting Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning and Design at the Graduate School of Design and Visiting Scholar at the Center for Geographic Analysis at Harvard University and Assistant Professor of Geography at the University of Kentucky, where he co-directs the New Mapping Collaboratory.
