Prominent New Media Theorist Lev Manovich gave a talk to a packed auditorium at the Laselle School of the Arts, introducing his field of cultural analytics, a project linking data mining techniques prevalent in the social sciences to visualization procedures in new media to create a generative exhibition tracking the dynamicism in global digital culture in an age of immeasurable data proliferation.

So the last day is upon us, and the last bits of action went around some talks in the morning and workshops after.  Here are some photographs of the conference’s last day.
