Creating and visualizing time series data with museum collections

Throughout this past year, CEB graduate student Shane DuBay has collaborated with Carl Fuldner, a PhD candidate in Art History, in a project exploring the Field Museum’s bird collections. This project, which involves photographing the birds and compiling these photographs as a time series arranged by the collection date of the bird, was made possible by a Collaboration Grant from the Arts, Science, & Culture Initiative at the University of Chicago.

A short video documenting Shane and Carl’s work was recently released by UChicago Arts and can be viewed here.
