Mathematics Studying Art 

When: Thu., Oct. 25, 7:30 p.m. 2012

Hudson Hall Room 125, Duke Campus—When you think Van Gogh and forensic sciences, the artist's severed ear likely comes to mind before thread counting. Art conservators, however, find C. Richard Johnson's Thread Count Automation Project more intriguing. Johnson, a senior professor of engineering at Cornell University, opened the IP4AI (Image Processing for Art Investigation) workshops in 2005 and has collaborated with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam since then to help art historians and conservators use powerful algorithm-building signal processors for painting analysis. Johnson delivers the final lecture in Duke's "Art+: Where Art and Math Intersect" series, co-sponsored by the departments of mathematics, art, art history and visual studies. Professor Johnson lectures at 7:30 p.m. —Chris Vitiello
