Shades of TIME Project

This repository contains all of the code and data used to generate the Shades of TIME project.

http://labs.drewconway.com/time

The process for generating the Shades of TIME required the following steps:

  1. The data set of Time Magazine covers, downloaded here

  2. Using OpenCV to detect and extract the faces appearing in the magazine covers

    • time_covers.py
  3. Using the Python Image Library to implement the Peer, at al. (2003) skin tone classifier to find the dominant skin tone in each face
    • skin_tone.py
  4. Designing a data visualization and exploration tool using d3.js
    • tones.js
