> Since 2008, the Software Studies Initiative has been developing new
> methods and techniques for the analysis and visualization of visual
> and interactive media.  The exhibition "Mapping Time" includes
> visualizations of novels, video game play, web comics, manga, motion
> graphics, feature films, and mass media publications presented via
> large-scale prints, animations and real-time generative projections.
> The visualized data sets range from 4535 covers of Time magazine
> (1923-) to 1 million Manga pages. The exhibition coincides with the
> lab releasing a number of open-source tools which were used to create
> all works in the exhibition.
> The lab uses the term Cultural Analytics to refer to its techniques
> for the analysis and visualization of large cultural data sets. For
> the "Mapping Time" exhibition, the concept is to render the "shapes"
> of cultural time. According to Manovich, "our goal is to demonstrate
> how we can visualize gradual changes over time at a number of scales -
> from a single minute of a video game play, to 11 years of the popular
> manga title Naruto, to 130 years of the journal Science (1880-2010).”
> The lab is directed by Lev Manovich, UCSD Professor of Visual Arts
