Draft question #1:

How often do the words selected by user-curators to identify their image collections in Pinterest match Panofski’s three tiers of the pre-iconological (primary or natural), the iconographical (secondary or conventional) and the iconographical(intrinsic or contextual)?

How well does a system developed in 1939 to interpret symbols in Dutch oil paintings predict how online image collectors organize their collections in the 21st century?

This project examines how Panofski’s three strata of image meaning are applied by individual “user-curators”  when creating naming conventions in the social image collection site Pinterest. This project is not concerned with retrieval issues, but focuses on user behavior when creating image collections.
