How Do You Look at Art? ZdS#15

Series : Zeste de science

  • Description
  00:04:25  2018  HD 16/9  Color  Sound

The Youtube channel Zeste de science explores all aspects of scientific research, proving that even the most complicated scientific facts can be explained in less than 5 minutes, and that even the most seemingly trivial events of everyday life, if thoroughly studied, can contribute to the biggest technological advances.
Episode 15: How do people look at a work of art? Sociologist Mathias Blanc tries to answer this question in a new project combining art history, sociology and computer science.
Thanks to their application Ikonikat, a visual survey tool, researchers from the French National Center for Scientific Research have discovered that people with different knowledge about art do not look at the same painting in the same way. Ikonikat was created to eventually help museums adapt to be more accessible to novices. The results of the survey will also benefit specialists, by giving them a fresh perspective on famous works of art.
