The Art of Counting project developed over a span of several years. It resulted from immersing an Egyptologist in a statistically-constructed, data-driven universe where numbers, rather than intuition, guide research pathways. Through direct interaction with nearly a dozen high level statisticians and data analysts, a method for applying this quantifiable approach to visual material was developed. During this early phase, I was asked to submit an article to a volume in honor of a former professor and produced a submission outlining the initial stage of the project and its potential.
