Symposium: Darkroom to Data / New Haven, 12 August 2024

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.

  • This looks like a really good event. Sadly there will be no online version and only they keynote address will be recorded.

    • That's a shame. It's a great programme, but a bit expensive to justify. It's during the school holidays and flights from London are around £1300 or £850 with a low cost airline... 

    • Let alone considering the carbon footprint, which would be considerable.
