How to become a cult leader.
There are 10,060 frames of video in Michael Jackson’s 5 min 35 sec nationally televised landmark performance of Billy Jean. The White Glove Tracking project (W.G.T.) is an effort to isolate just the white glove from this moment in pop-culture history. Rather then write unnecessarily complex code to find the glove in every frame of the video I am asking for the assistance of 10,060 individual internet users to simply click and drag a box around the glove in one frame. In the end this data will be shared freely for all to download, visualize, and use as an input into other digital systems.
Jeanne Brown, Head of the UNLV Architecture Studies Library, originally conceived this project, having collected information on Las Vegas architects and buildings since 1991.
