Show and Tell: Scientific representation, algorithmically generated visualizations, and evidence across epistemic cultures

Project description

How scientists use new types of images to show what they know

Images are central to scientific practice. But today’s images are different from those of the past. Accessible technologies create life-like algorithmically generated photo-like pictures made through the manipulation of digital data. The EU-funded SHOW AND TELL project is an in-depth ethnographic study of new digital methods for the documentation, analysis, and visualization of physical places with a focus on their movements between academic research, police and forensic work, and courtrooms. It follows researchers and practitioners as they develop manipulable, immersive environments to document and analyze archaeological excavations and crime scenes alike. The project will provide theoretical breakthroughs illuminating the processes that let us believe our eyes (or prompt us to question them) when we encounter new kinds of imagery.
