Glocal


Glocal is a collaborative project operated out of the Techlab at the Surrey Art Gallery. Its aim is to examine the role of digital images in culture.

Out of this project have come several useful tools. Two such tools that are a hybrid of browsing and analyzing are Image Breeder and Similarity Maps. These tools use similarities within the visual or compositional structure of images to group and compare them. In addition to these comparative tools, Glocal has also been working to teach users about the technical and historical aspects of making photographs. The software toolkits allow you to turn your computer's camera into "an innovative photographic device" with time lapse, exposure, and diptych tools. You can utilize the similar techniques as Muybridge, Marey, and other early photographers without leaving your laptop.
