Utilisation de l’application Ikonikat par des visiteurs au musée du Louvre-Lens

A group of visitors using the Ikonikat (Ikonik Analysis Toolkit) app at the Louvre-Lens Museum. Here, the visitors are analysing a digital reproduction of the Mathieu Le Nain painting "The Pilgrims at Emmaus" (circa 1645). They are discussing which areas of the artwork they think are the most significant, which they will then mark on the tablet. 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.

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.
