Movies, Fractals, and the Mind: New Academic Article Out
There’s a new academic article out in the journal Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, and RN’s own Director of Data Science and Product Innovation (Jordan DeLong, Ph.D.) is an author!
This article recaps a lot of work conducted in the lab of Prof. James Cutting at Cornell University. It addresses a number of ways to measure the physical structure/composition of a film, how those characteristics have changed/evolved over time, and how one particular manner in which films have changed might be a clue to understanding why movies are so good a capturing our attention. Hint: it has to do with fractals!
