A group of visitors using the Ikonikat (Ikonik Analysis Toolkit) application at the "Le mystère Le Nain" (The Le Nain mystery) exhibition at the Louvre-Lens museum. This application developed by research scientists at CNRS is a tool for visual analysis of works of art aimed at both the public and experts. Both a research and a cultural outreach tool, it assists in better understanding the reception of art images. Equipped with a tablet, the visitor looking at a painting can indicate, without resorting to words, what he thinks is pertinent in the image. The interface enables use of the finger to mark up the significant areas of the image by adding lines to its digital reproduction. Ikonikat is part of the VISUALL-tek project, a library of tools enabling collective interrogation of images. These applications are the result of interdisciplinary discussions between social science researchers and computer scientists specialising in man-machine interaction at the Computer Science, Signal and Automatic Control research centre in Lille (CNRS/University Lille 1/École Centrale de Lille).
