Lecture "What Does Data Want?" by Lev Manovich.
Dr. Lev Manovich is one of the leading theorists of digital culture worldwide and a pioneer in the application of data science for analysis of contemporary culture. Manovich is the author and editor of 15 books including Cultural Analytics, AI Aesthetics, Theories of Software Culture, Instagram and Contemporary Image, Software Takes Command, Soft Cinema: Navigating the Database and The Language of New Media which was described as "the most suggestive and broad-ranging media history since Marshall McLuhan."
He was included in the list of "25 People Shaping the Future of Design" in 2013 and the list of "50 Most Interesting People Building the Future" in 2014. Manovich is a Presidential Professor at The Graduate Center, CUNY, and a Director of the Cultural Analytics Lab that pioneered analysis of visual culture using computational methods. The lab created projects for the Museum of Modern Art (NYC), New York Public Library, Google, and other clients. His latest book "Cultural Analytics" will be published by The MIT Press in Fall 2020.
This academic year SLIVER is presenting a "Mixtape" by our junior faculty who contributed with their professional interests and pedagogical objectives. The winter term is a collection of architects, artists, and theoreticians whose work is circulating through the IoA in form of theoretical underpinnings, built references, and research ambitions.
