Parcours de couleur dans le cinéma d’artistes et expérimental : aspects techniques et perspectives esthétiques – M. de Filippis

Ce mémoire pose la question de la couleur en cinéma, d‘un point de vue esthétique et technique, en traçant un parcours des essais de couleur dans le cinéma expérimental et d‘artiste.

Technologies d’affichage numériques – J-B. Thomas

Ce document explicite les différentes technologies d’affichages. Il donne des informations techniques considérant la reproduction de la couleur et les technologies sous jacentes préentes derrières l’écran. Dans technologies d’affichages, nous incluons ce qui se trouve derrière le terme anglais display device. Nous présentons les principales technologies digitales utilisées pour afficher une image couleur. Nous ne traitons pas de l’impression. Ce document est majoritairement extrait d’une annexe de ma thèse de doctorat “Colorimetric characterization of displays and multi-display systems”.

Taxonomie des artefacts liés aux technologies films – M. Dubail

Artefact : nom masculin (mot anglais, du latin artis facta, effets de l’art)

– Structure ou phénomène d’origine artificielle ou accidentelle qui altère une expérience ou un examen portant sur un phénomène naturel.

– Altération du résultat d’un examen due au procédé technique utilisé.

– En anthropologie, produit ayant subi une transformation, même minime, par l’homme, et qui se distingue ainsi d’un autre provoqué par un phénomène naturel.

Larousse en ligne, 2011 (

Dans  notre cadre d’analyse, la comparaison du rendu visuel des films patrimoniaux en argentique et numérique, un artefact est un phénomène d’origine artificielle ou accidentelle qui altère la visualisation d’un film et qui ne fait pas parti de l’œuvre originelle

Nous allons tenter ici d’énumérer et de documenter certains des artefacts les plus fréquemment trouvés ou les plus problématique dans le cadre d’une archive muséale d’œuvres artistiques.

Colorimetric Characterization of a Positive Film Scanner Using an Extremely Reduced Training Data Set

Colorimetric Characterization of a Positive Film Scanner Using an Extremely Reduced Training Data Set
Jean-Baptiste Thomas; University of Bourgogne; LE2I; Dijon, France Clotilde Boust; C2RMF; Paris, France

In this work, we address the problem of having an accurate colorimetric characterization of a scanner for traditional posi- tive film in order to guarantee the accuracy of the color informa- tion during the digitization of a movie. The scanning of a posi- tive film is not an usual task, however it can happen for cultural heritage purpose. Art-movies, are often created and stored as positive-film in museums. One of the problems one can face for a colorimetric characterization is to have a reasonable number of measurements from an item. In this work we succeeded in having a reasonable accuracy with just a few number of measurement (typically 4 to 7 ∆Ea∗b units with 2 to less than 10 measurements).

CREATE conference

CREATE conference Gjøvik 2010
Colour in art, science, design, conservation, research, printmaking, digital technologies, textiles.

Where : Gjøvik University College, Gjøvik, Norway
When : 8th-11th June 2010

Thank you!
For making the CREATE 2010 conference such a successful end to the current CREATE project!

The organisers at the Gjøvik University College did a fantastic job in planning a lively and inspiring programme of conference and social events. With a welcome to Gjøvik from the Major in the Gjøvik Olympic stadium (the ‘largest manmade cavern fit for public use’) the week was off to a winning start!

As the last in the current programme of CREATE events, it was great to see such a mixture of familiar and unfamiliar faces – a testament to the scope this network has to continue to grow. We’ve had some great feedback from you about the positive impactCREATE has had on your research career, such as…

‘It was an extremely eye opening experience and I was excited and more than a little relieved to find so many people that were engaged in diverse and exciting colour research. It is testament to the range of participants that I made so many connections many of which with people that I would never have contemplated approaching under other circumstances. I was amazed at the extent to which people were able to find meaningful common interest despite coming from such a range of disciplines, quite inspiring!’

It was great to hear about the research projects you are currently working on with those you have met at CREATE events, and those you hope to start in the future. And how your exposure to research in other fields has inspired and changed your approach in your own chosen field. As always, please let us know of your activities.

So, the most important question for us now is – what next?! (Answers on a postcard please!)

We will add notes from the last discussion session ‘CREATE – past, present and future’ here soon, and will be working to update the website and it’s structure to offer you a useful tool for communication, information sharing and networking, that can sustain the network you have developed, for the foreseeable future. Again, any suggestions on how best we can do this would be gratefully received.

And more importantly, we hope to be back with a new project in the not too distant future – in the form of re-CREATE! So keep an eye on the website, and keep in touch!

Photos, papers and more from the conference are coming to the archive section soon…

With best wishes,
Carinna, Alison & all at CREATE

AMIA session, The Reel Thing – april 2010

Film Biennale 2010: Amsterdam
EYE Film Institute Netherlands (formerly the Filmmuseum) presents the Film Biënnale, featuring unique film events at special venues throughout Amsterdam from 7 to 11 April. The Film Biënnale showcases film productions which blur the boundaries between different artistic disciplines, merging music, art, theatre and poetry.

On April 7th, AMIA will present a half day session at the Biennale. The AMIA session will be followed by a half day of The Reel Thing.

Wednesday April 7, 2010
9:30 – 12:30 – AMIA seminar
13:30 – 17:00 – The Reel Thing

The AMIA session at the Biennale will explore online access to Audiovisual Archives. Traditionally film archives are responsible for providing access to archival audio-visual content. But access to on-line AV archives today is provided by a much wider variety of agents: from individuals to communities, from film festivals to academic programs. During this half day seminar a selected number of recent projects will be presented focusing on the who is providing access to audio-visual archives, why they are doing it and for whom.

Following the AMIA session, The Reel Thing will present a half day techical symposium. Dedicated to presenting the lastest technologies in audiovisual restoration and preservation. The Reel Thing brings together a unique lineup of laboratory technicians and specialists.

Archiving conference

Archiving conference history

The first IS&T Archiving Conference was held in 2004. Currently, the conference location alternates between the North America and Europe.


Since the first meeting, Archiving has continued to offer a unique opportunity for imaging scientists and those working in the cultural heritage community (curators, archivists, librarians, etc.), as well as in government, industry, and academia, to come together to discuss the most pressing issues related to the digital preservation and stewardship of hardcopy, audio, and video.

The latest information for the next Archiving conference is found below. As more information becomes available or changes, it will be updated here. Past and future conference information is found further down the page.

Next Archiving Conference

Dates: May 16 – May 19, 2011
Location: Salt Lake City, Utah
