         Subject: Use of Digital Images -- seeking experiences re looking
for the gaze


Digital images and the practices involved in accessing and manipulating
reproductions, may assist us in assessing the impact of words on viewing
images, depth of field, the direction of the gaze, the stories pictures
can and do tell. Part of realizing the technological promise resides in
recording and sharing just what it is that students and researchers do
with sets of images and fragments of image elements.

Do you or some of the subscribers to Humanist know of recent work on the
applications of digtial imaging to the analysis of graphic elements. I am
particular interested in the verification of descriptions made of sight
lines of depicted characters and the interpretative claims made for the
described sight lines. Would anyone report on the use of such
applications as the Virtual Lightbox?
