A movement study exploring the characteristics of successful news photos.

The work of artist Coralie Vogelaar consist of systematic studies revealing the mechanisms within our visual culture. She conducts them by using quantitative research methods like eye-tracking and image recognition software. Her latest project revolves around the question ‘What are the characteristics of successful news photos?’ One of the visual translations of this research is a movement study. Hereby nine dancers move from one frozen position into another based on successful images in conjunction with a choreography based on unsuccessful images. Every two original photographs – were the study is based on – were taken at the same moment and spot.
