I came across this image of a gender histogram I produced in 2010 whilst completing my honours.
The idea behind the image (shown cropped) was to see if it was possible to show an entire overview of the collection split by gender. Works by male artists are above the black line down the middle, works by female artists are below the line. This visualisation work was displayed as a 3m long printed poster.
Here are the slides for a talk I presented at the Concept & Methods Workshop: Structural Approaches to Online Communities and Networks, organised by the News & Media Research Centre at the University of Canberra.
The interfaces I demoed can be found at printsandprintmaking.gov.au/explore.
I presented at the Museums Australia 2013 conference in Canberra. The slides from my presentation, Escaping search: generous interfaces for cultural collections, are below.
Further information about what you can see above is available in my Museums and the Web 2013 paper.

Feedback from twitter
I’m very pleased to finally launch the interfaces I’ve been working on for the last 20 months. You can access them at printsandprintmaking.gov.au/explore.
My Museums and the Web paper, Visual Exploration of Australian Prints and Printmaking, provides further information about the interfaces and my research work.
My paper proposal for Museums and the Web 2013 got accepted. Entitled Visual Exploration of Australian Prints and Printmaking it will discuss the interfaces I’ve being building with Mitchell Whitelaw for the Australian Prints collection at the National Gallery of Australia.
