Réception et analyse des tracés issus de l'application Ikonikat au musée du Louvre-Lens

The sociologist Mathias Blanc gathers and analyses the marks made by visitors on the Ikonikat (Ikonik Analysis Toolkit) app in relation to the painting "The Peasant Family" by Louis Le Nain (circa 1642). Using this administrator interface, the research scientist collects the data and sends them directly to the server. The Ikonikat app, a tool for the visual analysis of artworks, is aimed at the general public as well as experts. Both a research tool and a cultural mediation tool, it aids understanding of how visitors respond to artworks according to their sociological profile (age, level of education, etc.). Ikonikat forms part of the VISUALL-tek project, a library of tools that enables the collective examination of images. These apps are the result of an interdisciplinary dialogue between social science researchers and computer scientists specialising in human-machine interaction.

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
