Heritage and experience design in the digital age

5th hyperheritage international symposium

*  *  *

Publié le jeudi 30 novembre 2017 par Céline Guilleux

Résumé

The term hyperheritage covers every hybrid cultural heritage environment augmented with digital information inviting us to explore new ways of perceiving, experiencing and practicing cultural heritage. Massive developments on ICT and the unprecedented spread of mobile, location-aware and immersive (augmented and virtual reality) technologies and devices, advocate for the exploration of new forms of human to human, human-computer and human-environment interaction and information communication on cultural heritage. These advances also imply gradually establishing new ways and means to comprehend, access, process, experience and perceive digital and interconnected cultural heritage information on a variety of delivery platforms, devices and environments.

Argument

The term hyperheritage covers every hybrid cultural heritage environment augmented with digital information inviting us to explore new ways of perceiving, experiencing and practicing cultural heritage. Massive developments on ICT and the unprecedented spread of mobile, location-aware and immersive (augmented and virtual reality) technologies and devices, advocate for the exploration of new forms of Human to Human, Human-Computer and human-environment interaction and information communication on cultural heritage. These advances also imply gradually establishing new ways and means to comprehend, access, process, experience and perceive digital and interconnected cultural heritage information on a variety of delivery platforms, devices and environments.

Human-to-Human computer-mediated communication protocols, are inviting information designers to reconsider the design of all digitally augmented Cultural-Heritage environments. Rather than questioning or challenging the role of traditional Cultural Heritage institutions, HyperHeritage comes to offer new communication means for processing, experiencing and perceiving Cultural Heritage information, as produced, created, consumed and experienced in all digitally interconnected dimensions and spaces.  

In June 2016, at the last conference, UNESCO reaffirmed the importance of tangible and intangible cultural heritage for the preservation and promotion of culture and as an engine for sustainable development. 

We are moreover witnessing an increased engagement from researchers, social actors, institutions and diverse publics for reconceptualising the transmission of cultural heritage in all its dimensions. This phenomenon is inherent to the preservation, development, experiencing and transmission of cultural heritage. It occurs in different temporalities and merges all facets of cultural heritage as it is experienced, perceived and lived. It also evokes issues related with concepts such as the construction of self, identity, emotions, memory, creativity and imaginary heritage spaces. 

The fifth HyperHeritage International Symposium (HIS.5) will be focusing –yet not limited-  on the theme "Heritage and experience design in the digital age ». 

HIS.5 examines the connections and operational complementarities occurring in the realm of the digital when it comes to the conceptualisation and design of digitally mediated heritage experiences. Indeed, while the theoretical elaborations on the creation, preservation and dissolution of heritage makings and memory registries are numerous, there are few empirical works dealing with planned or progressive experiments, and the integration of digital technology. Thus, HIS.5 focuses on the relationship between heritage experiences combining design and powerful tools for the preservation, study and transmission of cultural heritage information in an innovative way. It questions the diversity of merging points both in cultural heritage and experience design and how theories as well as contemporary practices relate to cultural heritage issues.

The goal is to think about cultural heritage, from its preservation and conservation to its dissemination, apprehension and re-appropriation, by integrating innovative tools that allow to "live" physically or virtually in “mixed” or "augmented reality" environments. 

The main axes around which HIS.5 will evolve include:

  • Adding new value to cultural heritage monuments, artefacts, documents and know-how through the use of digital technologies (virtual or augmented reality, digitization, 3D printing);
  • Creating and curating new content for experiencing cultural heritage, accessible and available, anywhere, anytime on a variety of platforms and devices (e.g. ubiquitous computing, NFS, cross-media, …);
  • Digitizing, producing, managing, making sense of, disseminating digital heritage content and associated data

Topics (key words)

Main topics of interest for the conference include -but are not limited to- the following: 

  • Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality for Cultural Heritage
  • Cultural Heritage applications and Big Data
