Visitors using the Ikonikat (Ikonik Analysis Toolkit) app. Here, visitors in front of one of the paintings in the Le Nain Mystery exhibition at the Louvre-Lens Museum are using their fingers to mark on a tablet the areas of the painting they think are the most significant. The 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.
